This is pretty much where I am on this topic. Personally I like the new
stuff to be at the top, but on long chains, it get's horrible no matter
where is it. Then top posting is best since you can find the new stuff.
Bottom posting is OK, and inline posting sucks if you add content in many
places, and heaven forbid quoting the mix!
