That's equally bad. The issue isn't about so-called "top-posting"
vs. "bottom-posting". The issue is that you should only be
quoting SMALL amounts of the original post -- just enough to
establish a context for what you're about to say.

Then people don't have to scroll either way to find the
new content.

(You will notice that I did not quote any more of the original
message, either at the top or the bottom.)
