As this has debate occurs on every mailing list on the entire internets 
at least once a year, maybe we could clue it up a bit to prevent those

Top posting, bottom posting, and mid-posting are all a personal 
preference and you're simply not going to change people's minds whether 
its by rational debate, name calling, or bribing.
