Top-posting is doing as you did, putting your reply before the
message(s) it referenced, and not removing any information or comments
from those messages that weren't relevant to the discussion at hand.
Correctly posting, like this, is usually referred to as "bottom
posting", as your message goes on the bottom, or "Interleaved posting",
if you reply to comments piece by piece, thus interleaving your comments
with those that came before.
Bottom posting makes it much simpler to see what the current topic of
conversation is, and what relevant information has already been posted
on the topic, as well as making the chain of messages flow in a more
consistent manner. It also has the advantage of taking up less bandwidth
and hard-drive space.
So please, in the future, take the extra few seconds it takes to format
your replies properly. It's a negligible amount of work for the massive
benefits it brings.
