I'm not following your point. I replied to the first message, the one
which started the thread.

I did make a mistake and top-posted, which damaged the context but if
you are reading the mailing list on Thunderbird or some other mail
client which supports threaded view, you'll see I replied to the right

You can argue that to those who read in Gmail and such the message
will appear at the bottom. That is a valid point but I can't do
anything about it besides bottom-posting to keep the context.

I saw a bad review, quickly scanned the thread to see if anyone else
had seen a pattern on what was working badly (networking related) and
decided to add my information, namely the peripheral possibly
responsible and a possible solution which I'm occasionaly working on.

There was no other solution for me to do what I did, except to avoid
the top-posting which indeed was an error on my part.
