a critical piece to this component is proper quoting.

the person replying needs to differentiate between what he is writing 
and what is is replying to.  notice the > in front of what I am quoting, 

in addition, clicking reply, quoting 100 lines, and then adding a 1 line 
response is lazy.  trim the quotation to what makes sense.

that said, i love a good top-post flame thread, so this should be 
interesting to watch.  I'll start off by saying the biggest whine i hear 
is that "my MUA doesn't support bottom-posting", which holds no water.

i dont care that much, though- i don't waste time on top-posted messages 
a nor messages that are quoted stupidly.
