So does every other GUI/web MUA.   I don't know why it is so hard for the
FreeBSD community to get that conventions have changed (for better or worse
I don't know but they have).  I have even had people complain about not
top-posting because "I can't find your reply" and thus almost the entire
world (except for a few technical mailing lists) either accepts or
encourages top-posting.
