Yes, but.  Didn't we have this discussion a few months ago, with zero

Specifically, J. Shirley almost always does this (bottom posting after
quoting entire message _with list sigs too_), and gave some other people
a hard time for pointing out that it's actually really unhelpful, in
reply to him pointing out quite stridently that he doesn't like
top-posting.  Apparently as long as you post at the bottom it doesn't
matter if it's easy to read your reply or not.

Digging through archives, that discussion seems to start around 1pm on
27 April 2009 (GMT/UTC), although the top posting discussion started
prior to that.
