I agree. I have to honestly say that in more than 10 years of using lists,
I have never seen anything the suggested adding posts at the bottom was
preferred in any context. The only reason I can think of for doing it is a
long discussion with many inputs being forwarded to someone who has never
seen it. This isn't how most lists actually work.
