"Top posting" refers to adding your comments to the top of the text you 
are replying to!   Net custom is to add your comments below the text or 
segment thereof.  It allows readers to read things in a "logical" order.

Some people get extremely upset about top posting; sufficiently so that 
they will add your name to their "killfile" which means that they will 
never have to see messages sent by you.
