To my mind it's no harder to read top down than bottom up in principle, but
mixing the two in one thread is very difficult. I'm not sure how best to
manage this, as I suspect we have a mixture of email clients that push you
quite hard in one direction or the other. I'll make a conscious effort in
future to try not to disrupt the existing flow of a thread, but can't
guarantee always to defeat the intentions of the software.
