Even if it weren't explicitly stated, top-posting is bad in general.
Especially like in the case that just occurred where a quoted section
was bottom-posted, but replied to in top-posting convention, which
resulted in a post that could neither be read from top to bottom nor
bottom to top, but rather from the middle out.
Note that I myself use Thunderbird. It is trivial to adapt accordingly
to handle bottom-posting.
