Just an idea to pass on:

Zillions of websites today are structured in a way that the last post appears on top.

It's easier to read something chronologically from top to bottom.

Ummm...no. The only ones I can recall that are done that way are the comment sections of some news sites...and frankly, I find it idiotic to do so. Who wants to read the answer before reading the question? :huh:

Well, I obvioulsy don't. It makes about as much sense as starting to read a book from the last page.
