That is because 'bottom post' is not just adding stuff at the end...
it is adding stuff 'after'
the relevant 'quote', eliminating as much of the original message that
is not necessary
to understand the context.
Done properly that lead to short message, to the point.

The poster child example (no pun intended) of the efficiency of this
technique is patch review/comment.
