Thomas- I see you are running Apple Mail.app, from your message 
headers. A fine choice for a Mail program! Try using the up-down arrows 
to go between messages, and hitting the space bar to page-scroll the 
message, and page up/down keys within the message as well. No mousing 
required.

The issue about posting at the top, bottom or middle of a reply is one 
of those well-argued issues that people always agree to disagree about 
:-)
