To the extent that when I bottom post in reply to emails at work, I get told off for not doing it properly as only top posting is considered "correct" in business. Out of stubbornness, I insist on bottom posting, trimming the dozen copies of peoples' signatures, etc :-)

That top posting is inherently silly is demonstrated when people reply, top post "replies inline" or something similar, and then go on to bottom post in reply to specific points - often using colour to highlight the quote. People never seem to have an answer when I point that out ;-)
Oh yes, and that polished t**d called Outlook doesn't even handle quotes properly.
