You're still top-posting. When you click reply in Gmail, do *not* begin
typing your reply where the cursor rests by default. Scroll down and make
your reply *underneath* quoted text, and as an optional (but highly
recommended) step, delete unnecessary parts of the quoted text.

You have to understand that all messages send to this list are being
delivered to hundreds of people, and they have no control over the manner in
which these e-mails are presented to them. Only Gmail users can afford the
luxury of auto-threaded posts with redundant quoted text hidden by default.
For everyone else, it looks like a mess.
