Is the order, or sequence, of rules in CSS significant?

This post says that it matters: <a href="" rel="noreferrer">Order of CSS rules matters!!!!!!!!!!</a>

I haven't noticed anything about this in the CSS spec.

Should <a href="" rel="noreferrer">Calculating a selector's specificity</a> say that if-and-only-if two rules have the same specificity, then it's the later of the two rules (i.e. whichever rule is defined after the previous rule) that's the effective rule?
