Actually, yes, there is.   I've been using Linux for eleven years and
most forums and email lists frown on top posting.  Even this one.

The trouble is that I am lazy.  I usually know what's in the thread I am
following so I don't need to re-read it.   So, I prefer top posting
because it is easier to insert a comment at the top than to scroll or
jump to the bottom and stick one in between the previous text and any
footers which may have been added.  I usually delete the footers to
eliminate clutter and continually bloating message sizes. 

But, I also abide by forum conventions and rules, so on this forum I
don't top post.
