I did "reply to a thread but deleted the contents, and started a new 
thread with a new title. I did that for convenience of addressing. I 
realize that it was a mistake and apologize.

As for Top replying----- well that is a valid discussion because there 
are pros and cons to both ways of writing a reply. There isn't  a 
"polite" way.
