Lol,

Omg top-posting is when you add new text to a mail at the top, where ppl
can read it, instead of at the bottom, where it flows in context of the
message.  Yet another religious debate online like sidetalkin or putting
braces on the, shudder, following line.

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.
