Obviously. But why not change the order if there's a more natural alternative? Furthermore, as the discussion gets longer and longer, it takes that much more scrolling to get to bottom of the page. Eventually, the most recent reviews will be on subsequent pages, which is even more of a bother. (And yes, I know there's a sort order option at the bottom of the page. But the same argument holds.)
For some discussions, oldest-first is most natural. In this case, like the discussion we're having now, it's best to see how the discussion evolves. But reviews are not in that category -- they are typically stand-alone comments, and as I said, as the review gets older it's more likely to have obsolete or dated information.
