I agree.  I prefer top posting in those cases because then I don’t have to scroll through *pages* of text that I’ve already read just to find one or two lines of text.

I’m at the point now that if I can’t see the reply on the first page of an email (which given my screen size and font combination is about 60 lines), I ignore it (and silently curse bottom posting).  ;-)
