That depends on how you define "communicate"...
It also assumes that everyone will gladly, sheepfully use "modern, multi-
paned mail readers".
You may be a sheep whose communications consist of little more than
adding simple confirming, negating or further-detail-requesting bleats to
others' messages, but "discussion lists" and many other forms of
communication commonly engaged via Email by higher order, bi-pedal
mammals demand more sophistication of all of the communicator, mail
reader and medium...
If you dislike "no top posting" because of neanderthals who haven't
grokked that it is about better communication and thus mindlessly quote
an entire message to add their simple confirming, negating or further-
detail-requesting grunts at the bottom, then you are making a false
comparison, as such stupidity is equally anti-communication-assisting as
your preferred top-bleating approach.
