Hi :)


Almost every office user i know (at least the few that use email)  posts at the
top of mails and leaves the previous posts dangling downwards along with any
signatures.  Some corporate users get all the previous thread deleted off the
bottom and a disclaimer added to the bottom.  So, at best they stick with the
defaults, the easiest thing.

I do know how badly office workers use mail, just because of some $µ%&@ OutlookExpress misbehaviour.

The question is how much we want to alienate first-time users and office users?
Who is more important to please, 'geeks' or potential new users?

Bottom quoting (hey, we've got a big furry troll) is the natural way of reading texts and answering questions:

> Question 1
Answer 1
> Question 2
Answer 2

and so on.

So no question (pun intended): bottom is the way to go :)
