For what it's worth, I was one of the close votes. My fault for not leaving a comment. My reasoning was that the order of the arguments in question is (pretty clearly, in my opinion) outlined in the documentation for position as follows:
Defines which position on the
element being positioned to align with the target element: "horizontal
The documentation goes on to explain that the ordering of the arguments is based on a CSS convention.
However, there are lots of questions that could be answered by a simple look at the documentation that aren't closed. I could see it being valuable to people in the future as well. I've voted to reopen.
As a side note, close votes aren't against you and aren't meant to be personal (I know it can feel that way sometimes though). They are simply directed at the question. Nobody that closed the question was pursuing a "vendetta." Closing questions is a quality control mechanism for the site, and occasionally there are false positives (which is why the "reopen" functionality exists).
