Bottom posting requires a ton of extra work such as trimming and such
which office workers really do not have time for.

Trimming is a sensible thing to do, whichever way you post.  It's work
for the poster, not the reader, and top-posting is a benefit for the
reader, not (primarily) the poster.

I really hope you don't mean that trimming is a waste of time. Ever see
a reply to a digest message that quoted the whole digest. What fun.

But doesn't trimming undermine the argument?  How can the discussion be
read sequentially when bits of it have been deleted?

Not really. The un-deniable fact: the English language convention is
to read left-to-right, top-to-bottom.
