I for one, appreciate it :)

Since we're finding a large number of new and excited people joining
our mailing lists in the recent months, we're definitely going to see
this more often.

Many times, when I see someone top-post a couple times, I will send
them a private email with similar friendly wording and the same
wikipedia link to remind them that we would like to keep the
communication format clean and readable :)

A direct and private email may help to keep the embarrassment level
down for people who maybe aren't used to mailing list communication so
