I agree with what your saying (accept for the bit about the reply always 
at the bottom) I was just venting frustration at all these emails from 
Karun about the gnome list , etc, etc.  I wish we had not been put on in 
the first place.  

I sometimes find it quicker and easier with the new text at the top as 
long as it is in response to the whole email.  That way I don't have to 
wade through all the crap which I probably already know what it says
