I like to make a simile with TV series. Often, at the beginning of each
episode, you get a "previously on" segment with the relevant scenes of
the previous episodes, to help follow the plot.

With top-posting, instead, you would have the new episode #n
immediately, followed by "previously on" and a complete rerun of episode
#(n-1), including the rerun of episode #(n-2) that was at its end.
