Top posting is what I have done here.
I just added my post to the top of this message without deleting those
portions that are not necessary to my respons.  

I could have just clipped your question "what is top-posting" and deleted
the rest.

Top-posting here is inefficient.  But top posting is not always bad.  If it
is important for someone to be able to backtrack the messages without trying
to navigate the mail list archive which may or may not thread the discussion
correctly.

So -

PhD's aside - what is top-posting?  I asked last time this was mentioned and
did not get a response.  Actually, I was accused of the same and still have
no clue.
