Of course it is my opinion, and it is not senseless. It makes perfect sense. <br><br>When threads are displayed in the order they are posted, it allows the web surfer, at a glance, to see what has been posted since the last time they visited. With the thread bumping, you have to dig. It's a guessing game. <br><br>
But you never know when a late hit to an old thread might add some new value, or spin the topic in a new direction. Like Nebo said, if you know the thread is old, and have no interest in revisiting it, don't click on it.<br><br>
I understand your frustration, it seems that several of the people here would like it to be like MC, and the rest like the thread bumping. I actually prefer it the way it is here because I can see the active topics all at once. However, I understand the frustration of looking for a particular topic that you know was posted two weeks ago... it could take forever to find it just by browsing the thread list - but the search options do work fairly well.<br><br>I think the option of setting to whichever way your prefer would be optimal.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site
