There is information loss when not replying interspersed.  As soon as
you address more than one issue, it is not readily clear what you are
replying to.  Your message for example shows this even, too.

I for one am simply more likely to just delete a message thread without
reading it further when people top-post in it, or bottom-post in it
without removing irrelevant parts.  It it more effort for me to read
them, and I am less willing to spend effort replying.  But this is
off-topic here.  I've set Reply-To: to me.
