what does top posting mean?

not sure where THIS post should go, I figure anything goes here.

Thanks,

it means the content of your reply is above the quote instead of below, like this.

It's not terribly awful, but it is awkward (for some people, including me) to read.

If the comment is important enough to quote, then I think it should be read first, before I read the post that references it, rather than afterward when I'm trying to figure out what the post was about. I'm on a scrolling page, so I am clicking down line by line and don't look for the end of a post before I begin reading.

But that is just me; some people do seem to prefer it the other way.

I am with you Sakura-panda. I prefer this way as well ^

Makes more sense to me.

Before I read someone's reply, I like to try and get a sense of what it is they are replying to in the first place.
