Hi Mike,
blind listors are used to having the reply at the top since screen readers
can only access one line at a time and this makes reading through the
original post a bit inconvenient.

Since the majority of Rockbox listors are sighted, I feel out of respect we
should make more of an effort to reply under the original post.
I don't mind doing this and am sure most blind/visually impaired users on
this list wouldn't either.
I think this is the least we can do to show our appreciation, since the
Rockbox dev's and others are doing us a great service!
