Well, at risk of getting a moderation bit: how does this strike you?
Let's drop the top-posting complaints, and instead complain about the
thing that really does bug me (as well as all of the anti-top-posting
crowd): excessive quoting.

My main complaint here is that the impression I get, from the responses
to top posting, is that massive quotes are ok, so long as you put your
response at the bottom of them rather than the top.

My personal opinion on this aside, I'm not convinced it's a good idea
for list moderators to be setting a bad example by regularly violating
the rules of the list.
