Hello there,

I notice some people are top posting (i.e. putting their reply above quotes).

To me that seems kind of backwards as you have to read down then up to know what they are talking about.

Just curious, if you are a top poster, what is your logic? (and would you please stop haha)

…or maybe I’m the backwards one!

My thinking for bottom posting is that you can read the whole thread straight through if you have to and also chop up the quote to reply directly if necessary…

Anyway, interesting to see what people think
Thank you

Interesting point.
