Top posting works in conversations you are having with someone, usually just one person, because you  are aware of what's 
been said.
If one comes into a conversation with many people and reads the top post, there is no reference to what that applies to 
unless you've been following the conversation from the beginning.

I wonder if anyone actually took the time to read the relevant links on the NANOG page gord referred to?
