Top, Bottom posting is kind of a pain in the butt. There is no end of 
the hell I catch for bottom posting on some other lists. MY Thunder bird 
is set up to Bottom post and it's hard to remember to top post when you 
get on a list that does it that way.   I think some of my posts don't 
get read because people are looking for the next post at the top.  I 
usually leave the headers in but remove the mail.  That way, if their is 
any interest I what I have to say the reader can go back in the list if 
there is a long list of posts on the subject.
