Whereas this (which is what you did) isn't.

It can get a bit annoying if everyone top posts vs. replying
underneath & cutting out the quoted bits that aren't neccessary (like
how I chopped out everything from your mail that I wasn't replying
to).  Emails get larger and larger and if you receive digests you get
multiple copies of the same thing in an enormous email.  Some people
care, some people don't... like most manners :)

That's all there is to it really.
