Your default method of reply isn't determined by the mailing list. It's 
determined by the account settings in whatever application (website 
email, stand-alone email client, etc.) you're using to reply.

For instance, in Mozilla Thunderbird's account settings under 
Composition and Addressing, you can set whether to top or bottom reply. 
Most stand-alone clients have this capability. I don't know for sure 
about webmail access. I don't use it, so can't say.
