This argument is a lost cause. While bottom posting is the "true and correct" way, web and mobile clients, used by millions of people, ONLY do top-posting. Limitations in UI making doing anything else different (and unfortunately, I don't think anyone cares enough to do otherwise).
Top posting is here to stay.
