[admin] postings from non-subscribers

Top posting is easier for some, bottom posting for others. Also, a sane mda
will show all new messages at the bottom, meaning you see the previous
messages above the current message. Leaving the full quote in for those who
aren't using a sane mda to be able to read through and find previous
messages, indented to show threading, is a matter of courtesy.

The only time inline responses make any sense at all is when there are
multiple separate points to respond to, and the only time a bottom post
makes sense is when you want your recipients to have to scroll through the
previous context *twice*, and get annoyed.
