Er, yes we do.

Yes. You certainly do just like everyone else here but none of my
clients do ;)

Your clients presumably aren't using mailing lists. The objection to
top-posting is strictly in the context of Internet mailing lists, which
tend to have many members, last for many years, and have all their
traffic archived. In other contexts, do whatever seems best. I often use
top-posting in private communications.

Perhaps Philippe should file a bug against his clients =p.

But yes, Mailing Lists seem to be the ONLY place bottom-posting 'works'
anymore. In private (long) conversations you have to explicitly state
"reply interleaved" at the top to get anyone to read it.
