Anyway, IMHO, writing after the quote is not always the best way to go.
That is, it's the best way to go if the reader is reading only the last

but if one, as I usually do, reads a thread starting from the first
post, it's a bit awful, since you have something like this:

When you read a post that is around level 5/6 you must skip a lot of
text that you have already read in the previous posts and, of course,
the text you are interested in (i.e. the reply of the sender of the
post) is not immediately visibile when you open the post (you must
scroll down and skip the above text before reaching it).

That's what the "End" key was invented for... ;-) Igor

Probably I'm using Thunderbird in a wrong way or, worst, I'm using the wrong tool, anyway when I use the "End" key, I'm immediately been taken to the last mail of my inbox/last post of the group.
