In order-
You'd be amazed at what would annoy people.

Because I like it.


(As I've opined before, IME many people consider what we might call inline 
posting to be "bottom posting". I follow language that usage.)

It's not only about where you put the reply text, it's about how much of the 
original you retain. Users of one style are more apt to remove nothing from 
the original message while users of the other are apt to remove large chunks.
