The trick is to actually pause and think for a moment who you're
sending mail to and use their preferred style.
At work, the house style is top-posting. It irritates the hell out of
me, but that's the way to communicate most effectively so I grit my
teeth and bear it. OTOH I'm on mailing lists where there's a chance
of automatic unsubscription for sending top-posted HTML crap.
