private messaging, post response on top or underneath?

The few times I have posted private messages in an exchange, I dont know if you post responses under or above the text.
I would naturally think it should flow from top to bottom in age time of the message.
Except that people seem to post above all the messages of the text?

I have seen it turn into a confusing mess trying to follow the flow.

I think it should flow just like the forum posts flow, with the newer ones at the bottom.

Have seen it done both above and below by others.

Wifey B: Toilet seat up or down? Toilet tissue front or back? Does it really matter?

1. Depends on how b-r-o-a-d a butt the user has!

2. Depends on how much of a rush one is really in!!

Made the maiden voyage on a new tug once, just underway, had to use the head. New toilet, no seat! Ran to the skipper and told him, says he, "I wondered who would need to use it first, here go put the seat on!". LOL.


I hear you about where to reply though. On another forum it tends to get confusing as well. I put it wherever it will fit and hope for the best.

I can never figure out where the message goes, so I just put it wherever.

I'm easy. I follow whatever pattern the other person starts. If I'm the first to respond, then I normally go bottom but not always.

Seems so obvious to both of us but others just don't get it.

We've never argued over the toilet seat as we both understood it was likely to have to be changed a good percentage of the time.

If you just click on reply to a PM, you will find the default is for it to go under the message being replied to, and if one exchanges several, then each ends up ringed off by a margin, with the latest reply at the bottom with no surrounding margin line. That way the whole conversation flows in sync & chrono order, top to bottom, so why mess with the default format?
Just sayin'...Seeing that was the original question put.
