Well, some people do know about bottom-post, but still persist doing
top-post. That's because they include the *full* backlog. Anyone added
to the CC: list is able to follow the entire backlog by reading (in
natural reading order) everything after the first signature. Then he
reads the message itself.

I disagree with that kind of mails, but I can understand people using it
at work and getting used to it. It's just a pain when they do that on a
mailing list :)
