Had not noticed.
However, my preference is that all did the same as I do since I view the latest as new material and the prior as footnotes.
Part of my being in independent in many ways.

Vinny, have you noticed that nobody else here does top-posting, and when you do, it makes conversations difficult to read?
I don't think it's realistic to expect everyone else to change, but if you're okay with people having trouble reading posts you participate in, okay by me.
I'm not sure it qualifies as "independent" if you want everybody else to do things the way you do them, though.
The quoted bits are the part being replied to, so it's like having a recap of last week's episode at the start of the new episode instead of after it.
We'll see if this works.
But an expanded "independent" answer. My "independent" answer was not meant to say "and, I expect others to do it my way." It meant I independently decide for myself. And, that generally means I also think it's a better way for others.
I've been in my email discussion groups. And, over the decades there have been the top versus the bottom debate.
My reasons for top:
1) I've read so many emails that are long, long, long, long. It takes me forever to get to the bottom of them, scrolling through things I've already seen and read, just so I can read someone writing two words like, "I agree."
2) Of course, it will also take me that same amount of time to get to the bottom for me to write anything.
3) I prefer to immediately see the new on top. In regards to prior discussion, a. I can infer what is on the bottom from the context of the fresh response b. If I've been actively reading the discussion, I remember what is below. c. If a. and b. don't work, it's all there on the bottom for me to find.
4) When I think of the emails (both personal and business) it does seem that most of the world has moved to responded on the top?
