I always took exception with the logic of this pop argument --not  
with the principle of top posting itself, but with the specific  
argument that is used to justify it: if the human brain can resolve  
the inverted A/Q puzzle so easily, the "unnatural" flow of  
conversation (from A to Q) is no impediment to communication.
