yahoo is one of the problems here ;)
Since yahoo 'automatically' quotes all of the message ... along with it's
advertising ... and it can get very annoying when it builds up unnecessarily.
Top posting is adding your new comments on top of that stack of quotes.

Many email based lists prefer not to have 'top posting' or at a minimum not to
quote any of the previous message to make things more coherent when one looks
back through an archive. It is a very religious thing with some people simply
refusing to follow the etiquette agreed for a list. We are having a battle with
some users on the PHP lists who deliberately include sigs and everything rather
than adding replies in-line with only the necessary amount of quoting to
complete the reply.
