Quite well described in this wikipedia page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posting_style

A: Because it messes up 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 in e-mail?

Bottom-posting preserves the logical order of the replies and is
consistent with the Western reading direction from top to bottom. It's
even better and easier to read if you also remove non-important parts
of the original text (C-c C-d).

Cheers,
Jonathan
