I have to agree, and on Android phones it can be a pain. Furthermore,
I know 2 people who have left this list because of, I quote, "Pathetic
childish behaviour". I have to agree in a way, but some of the people
on this list are very good people to talk to, and it is a good
community. I just think that, yes some people are going to top-post.
At the moment it is inevitable, but if you feel it is a big problem,
get in touch with the people who write the email software, and
politely request it be changed. If enough people think it's important,
it will be changed, I'm sure.

Just my 2p there.
