Consider a thread with some 50 replies. If everyone top-posts in that
thread, at the end of 50 th reply the OP's message will be repeated for
50 times, 49 times the second persons reply and so on.!!?? Is this
tolerable size? Thus the top-posting wastes the bandwidth. :( I find it
quite annoying. 

Bottom-posting is also not preferred. Interleaved posting is my
choice :)
