Reading backwards!

The more emails I get, the more people I see top-posting and it drives me crazy! It's totally counter intuitive to how we normally read. When you reply to an email and you quote the original email you should put your reply under the quoted section. That way when I get the email I can read all the previous replies in order (top to bottom like a book) and THEN see your response. It's just logical.

Instead I get all these top posted emails with three pages worth of back story to read. So I have to scroll all the way to the bottom to start reading. I read one paragraph, and then scroll up to read the next reply, and then scroll up again... Ugh! People don't read that way!
