Top-posting defined simply ...

A: Because it fouls the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail?

Unfortunately all Micro$lop 'standard' email clients and a few others
put the cursor at the top of the email, so the bad habit has developed
across the world both domestically and in businesses,
to write there, rather than continuing the email thread
at the bottom.
