Absolutely. I've been saved from embarrassment countless times because
while editing the quote so I could respond to it point by point, I
realized I had misread the the original poster.

Top posting usually indicates that the person replying to my email never
really read it, and is just replying to what he thought I said or asked.
 Frustrating to no end.  This problem is endemic in corporate
communication.  Corporate email is completely nonfunctional as a means
of communication, largely because of the top posting culture.  Well
communication is a problem in general in corporations because of the
personalities that tend to gravitate towards the management end of
things. Top posting just makes the communication that much worse!

Or when they bottom post without trimming, or even when they interleave
their responses without trimming.
