Of course, if you use a mail client that's capable of quoting correctly, 
it all works beautifully.

You can then also reply to another point here like this: it's as much 
about trimming previous posts as about not top posting. New posts should 
include just enough context to ensure the message isn't meaningless, but 
not quoting a 20+ line irrelevance. That way you see both the question 
and the answer without scrolling.

Whilst we're on the subject of mailing lists, I'd like to add my 
personal pet rant: MTAs that don't add/honour In-Reply-To headers. 
Completely breaks threaded readers.

That is all :-)
