You start your post with this pretty decisive statement, but the rest of the following paragraph doesn't really make it clear as to why you believe that statement. What makes you think it's ridiculous that top watering could kill a plant? I now routinely lose flytraps in one of my greenhouses where water condenses on the ceiling and sometimes drips down on the crown of the flytraps and causes them to rot. In this case, top watering definitely kills flytraps.
