most of us read from the top down, therefore bottom posting is part of
The Way(c). Also remember that you are not necessarily just posting

These lists get indexed by search engines and can serve as a great
resource to others in the future when trying to research an issue, in
which case bottom posting helps considerably.
besides, only newbs top post. ;-)
