I replied to your mail, so you cannot possibly have written it after I
replied to it.
Here's how it went:

I had not replied to any of your previous mails, only to Randy Dunlap.
The suggestion that I (deliberately) misquoted you is baseless. The
confusion stems from your top-posting, which makes it easy to lose
the thread. Sylpheed has an excellent threaded view - switch it on and
you'll see the thread quite clearly.
