What it does say in essence is that top-posting is a convenience for
Outlook and Blackberry users, and that's just about it.
One might consider the Scribus list as more than emails bouncing back
and forth, but rather trying to be a source of information for users,
supplementing the main Scribus site and the Wiki.
If adding information at the top made sense for those trying to get

information at the top of each article rather than in a more appropriate
I would also add that inline posting is certainly advocated, when it
makes sense to the flow of reading.
