Well, you see, it's all about the context.
It's a rather subtle thing really, and one needs a bit of feeling to do this just right.

If you are answering some particular question in the original text, or you are commenting

on a particular section, then it makes it much easier for everyone (or at least Western 
readers), if you keep questions and answers in sequence.

See Mark's previous post in "Re: tomcat 5.5.26 misses a jar contaning 
org.apache.tomcat.core.BaseInterceptor . . ."
and imagine this all top-posted..

However, if you were to make a general comment or observation not really related to any 
section in particular, but to the message as a whole, then why not place it where it is 
easiest to read without scrolling ?

Now let's not allow this to spread unduly; I suggest that only long-time contributors to 
the list (3 years or more), would have the proper appreciation and restraint to be allowed

to flaunt the general rules once in a while.
