Well, I wonder about that.

The only reason I'm not top posting is because others on this list complained about it.

Personally, when there have been several posts on a thread, I consider it far more efficient not to have to wade through all the posts to get to the end to see the most recent.  It makes no sense to me when I could otherwise see them at the top.

If one hasn't followed the thread it is easy enough to go to the bottom and read posts from the bottom up, but far more common, it seems to me, is the situation where I've read the previous posts and then have to scroll down going through the earlier posts and sometimes lengthy signatures to see what the new post says.

Those who manage to skip all the earlier posts on a thread, or often can't remember them, would find bottom posting more efficient.

The group on this list seems to have made the decision to reply at the bottom, which is fine-but I don't agree it's accurate to say that it's helpful, just custom on the list.
