XF 1.2 Is it possible to sort posts by default by date descending?

One user - just one - reads threads starting with the most recent and then going older. Completely opposite to normal humans.
He's asking if there is any way to sort the posts in the thread display by descending post date.
I'm guessing not?

There's always one, isn't there?

Certainly not an option in the default software. There is no sorting available for posts at all.

Is he aware that the default behavior is that you're automatically taken to the first unread post in a thread? Does that help somewhat?

Isn't that the thread display order rather than the post display order?

I assumed Stuart was talking about the order of posts within a thread.

It wouldn't be difficult to make a addon that does it, although having it an option would add an extra query per thread page...
