You are, I'm afraid, just plain wrong when it comes to how I work.  This may 
be an accurate description of how you work, but you speak only for yourself, 
though there may well be many who agree with you.

One of the great things that I like about KMail, is that, at one stage 
uniquely among email clients, it allows one to pre-trim.  I never quote the 
whole text to which I am replying in the first place.  I highlight the bit to 
which I wish to reply, and only that gets into the composer window.  
Moreover, I normally interleave, as you would know had you read many of my 

What are the two blank lines for in your interpretation?  

Why should it be easier to interleave starting from the  top than from the 

No, most people start to type where the cursor is.  I have had clients 
complain that with the cursor at the bottom they bottom post and their 
friends complain.  It doesn't occur to them to move the cursor.  A cursor at 
the top strongly encourages top posting.

Let us choose where we want our cursor.  Have yours at the top, by all means, 
but let those of us, who wish to, have it at the bottom.

So again, does anyone know how to get KMail to stop trying to make me 
top-post?  I fear that there may not be a way.  I have often said that I must 
either put up or shut up - but I can still hope!!
