So, I have noticed that different people respond to geekmail in different ways.

Some (like me) will type their response at the top of the message.

Quote:
yadda, yadda, yadda

While others reply at the end of the message.

Some just delete the original message altogether.

Which do you do?

Poll
I reply to a geekmail by:
typing my response at the top of the message.
typing my response at the bottom of the message.
typing my response and deleting the original message.
I don't respond to geekmail.
Other (list in a comment below).

This is a blatant example of frivolous geek gold spending.

I spent 100 geek gold and all I got was this lousy overtext.

I quote only the parts of the original that I'm explicitly responding to, and then reply after the quote.

I'll top-post and/or delete most the previous quotes if it's an extended conversation. For quick responses or line-by-line replies I'll bottom-post.

I do it at the top, unless I forget.

If someone is replying to me, then I'll follow what they did (reply at the bottom if that's what they did).

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I'll cut out the nonpertinant parts of the quote and then top post.

Normally at the bottom.

But, if it's large I use ellipses and edit out unimportant stuff. And then if we start replying a lot back and forth, I'll move to the top OR delete the whole thing and start over.
