Keep in mind that most government email conversations (that I've seen)
are done through top-posting, and reading through a long conversation
can get very confusing in determining who said what. I agree with
having signatures at the bottom, and greatly prefer bottom-posting,
but I know that when I worked in a government office, having a simple
signature at the top that told the reader exactly who was saying what
would have made life a lot simpler.
