It would help if people would edit their quotes rather than posting entire
The current lazy practice of quoting the entire previous article and
then adding a few comments, either at the beginning or at the end, is
both wasteful and pointless. The reader can always go back and view
the previous article if they want. So don't quote the whole preceding
article. Figure out how to use an editor!
If people do this, there is no issue of "top" or "bottom".

People read right to left and top to bottom. The chronological sequence of
a flowing message is top to bottom. If you wish to save a message for future
use and follow it's flow, it makes sense to read the message top to bottom.
I agree, however, that it is an inconvenience to scroll to the bottom to read
a response. That is why I try to edit out the non pertinent parts of the
quoted part that don't pertain to my response.

Looks like the veterans lost control...I don't see any "established format"
other than giving people a hard time, and you didn't fail me there...
