oops. I developed this habit because I found I like to read it this
way. As I usually would read just the first few lines to see if I want
to read on. top post serve me well for this purpose. And I assume other
may also find my stuff not worth reading and skip quick so why force
them to scroll all the way down ? I would only do in-line response type
when there is a need for specific response in context.
