Top posting is the better way. You see the reply as soon as you open the posting without first having to page down. Much, much easier to browse through a day's download keeping one's finger on the "Next" button.
If you haven't been paying attention and _REALLY_ need to be reminded of the prior contributions to a thread, well, they're there at the bottom; but you're not forced to wade through them to get to the bit of interest.
