Thank you for writing this Public Service Announcement. It is well spoken, and worth keeping around to revisit when the busy life stands in the way of careful editing we all know we should engage in.

While I prefer bottom posting myself, and use it almost exclusively for my personal and professional communication, and while bottom posting is the standard on this list, please note that it only makes sense if you trim the messages you answer to.
BTW, at the risk of being Captain Obvious, I remind that most email clients, including the mobile ones, do the right thing if you drag-mark the relevant pieces of the mail you're responding to: they include only the marked pieces and position the cursor below them rather than at the default top.
