When responding to an email do you post your response at the top or the bottom of the email?

And some other food for thought...

  • Does it matter?
  • Is there email etiquette for this type of behavior at your place of work, your organization, or your open source project?
  • Does it differ with personal email?

Tell us which you prefer and why.
