A lot of email clients are set up by default to put the entire message 
quoted below the new reply.  Mine is too.  I manually rearrange things 
to put quoted posts in top-to-bottom order for two reasons:

- Top-to-bottom is how people read, so it can make the relevance
   of the quoted material more self-evident.

- It annoys me to do so, so I quote as little as possible. :)
