Correct - this is what I meant when I said the vast majority of people
who prefer bottom posting - and refer to it by that name - do NOT mean
'blindly quoting an entire message, signatures, footers and all, and
adding their reply beneath it all'.

To promote such as a reasonable way to interact on mailing lists would
be the height of absurdity.
