Mixing Top Post and Bottom Post - Bad
How about a thread where some people top-post and others bottom-post
(leading to a mixture of both styles in the same quoted message)? If
that is bad, why don't we just standardize ...

Which is the entire point;  read any of the very good netiquette
documents (even RFCs!).

The *standard* is to bottom-post (or better: inline) your response.  But
that clearly isn't going to happen.  We could "just standardize" - you
just need to convince everyone who top-posts and also everyone who can't
trim signatures and extraneous crap from their replies.

That was kind of my point. I was being ironic.
