Did you actually make a survey of c.l.p users to determine what
fraction finds top posting poor human-to-human communication? My guess
is that below 31%. From the top of my head only one name comes to mind
who thinks top posting is at least sometimes appropriate: GvR.

Note: you are free to install software that will automatically delete
any post that is top posted and voila a, you will never be bothered
again. Why not do that?
