Some will tell you yes and advocate bottom supering. I say no but do it occasionally  grin Something sometimes just says try it.

the empty is on top of the full?  why not just pull the full one if it's capped.  if not capped,  i usually put the empty one under the full.  they will cap the top and start filling the empty.  it makes it easier to pull the full one when it's ready anyway.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
