That's only an issue when people quote more than they have to. Good quoting
1. Place your replies directly below the text that you're referring to.
2. Quote only that which is necessary - keep quotes short, and abbreviate them
(e.g. using [...]) if necessary.
Personally, most of the time, I don't even bother to read discussions where
people use top-quoting. It's a waste of time, since often it's very hard to
guess to what text passages the author of a posting is referring to. Sure,
he could include references to those in his message, but with good quoting he
doesn't have to.
