Even for two-person, private email discussions I prefer the interleaved 
replies -- in a week when I have to remind myself what was discussed it 
is much easier to comprehend.

Yes.  It is extremely annoying when someone top posts and leaves the 
entire rest of the discussion still attached at the bottom.
