Location of Poster Name / "Replying to" Name

Poster Name Location:
In the previous two incarnations of the software the poster name was listed at the top of the post. In fact that's the convention at pretty much every message board. With this release poster name now appears at the *end* of a post. As long as the the post is short the name appears on screen but if the post scrolls off the screen you have to move down to see the name. Could you restore the earlier default? I prefer to know the name first before I read the post. Think of it like a telephone call where the caller says their name before speaking.

"Replying To" Name
In the previous release post were marked with the name poster to which the reply was directed (i.e. each post said "John Smith replying to Kathy Jones.") This feature was added to fix a limitation in the indenting method of identifying replies where indenting stopped at the third level. The method worked nicely and should be brought back.
