top posting / reply quoting - attention gmail users (and others)

I think it is interesting that you insist that putting your reply at
the bottom of your email is some sort of "law."

I've been using various email clients since 1991 and I have not seen
any consistent use of "bottom quoting," as you say.

I've always personally found it more convenient to "top quote," as you
put it, simply because the person's reply is the first thing to be

I also find your political quote that you append on every single email
to be inappropriate for Audifans. Maybe I'm in the minority in that
regard, but considering that you are an admin, I don't think it's
appropriate. If you ban people from the list for off-topic posts and
"for sale" listings, you should also police your own conduct.
