is google making you top post, or is google putting your cursor at top
of quoted so you can trim dead history and reply interspersed?

why changed settings. how would google or any email client know what
you want to reply to?

i know gmail and thunderbird do not know what i want to reply to, so
i have them set to start at top of quoted message.

just seems logical to me to do it that way.
