Basically, it comes down to "top posting is rude".

If you were talking with somebody and they were belching in your face, 
you'd probably walk away.

Trying to hold a meaningful USENET "conversation" when somebody is top 
posting is much the same - made extra bothersome because it might be an 
interesting thread.

So certainly, if you want somebody else opinions/suggestions/help, being 
rude to them doesn't encourage favorable reactions.

(This coming from another person who is interesting in Prothon but 
becoming less so just because of pain of having to wade through 
top-posting).
