In PostgreSql you have to first create a database and then right-click the database and restore a backup into the new database. Seems backwards and non-intuitive.
Both ways are logical enough ("get a container/object/variable, then put stuff in it" happens all over the place, in programming), so it just depends on the logic preferences of the app's developers.

This, on the other hand, is completely unforgivable.

The number of heads I've had to pound "Say what IS, not what is not!" into goes beyond counting.

Misusing negatives happens all over, though.  If you use VLC (one of the best apps around), and have the audio or a subtitle running out of sync, there are hotkeys for "delay up" and "delay down", so if it's early, you have to press a key to increase the delay, etc.

Making the delay number bigger moves the audio/subtitle backward, and a negative number moves it forward: -0.4 seconds is 0.4 seconds in advance!  It does your bloody head in, when you're trying to read lips and make the voices sync with them!

I'd love to meet the dev who thought that was logical, and introduce him to the logic of cricket-bat diplomacy.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
