The default setting seems to be displaying the last post at the top of the thread, and everything after that in reverse chronological order. It's taken me all weekend to figure out that I haven't lost my mind.

You can change that in your profile settings.

Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

Sure, but 99% of the message boards on the planet have the most recent post at the bottom of the page. It mimics the experience of reading the printed page, which is left to right, top to bottom. For English speakers, text presented any other way is disorienting.

Plus, if I'm a lurker without an account here, I can't change the default settings. I'm pretty sure we have a lot of lurkers here.
