Depends on circumstance of the response.  If it's like this, with a single,
short, question to answer, I generally use "bottom".   If it's a multipart
question, I may intersperse, again, "bottoming" after each part of the
question.  If I'm just providing a quip or a link, I may "top" and trim the
question a bunch.
