I agree. It's a serious usability flaw and irritates the living hell out of me too.
The only good thing I have to say about it is that it disappears on page 2 of threads.
When it first came out, there were plenty of suggestions about how to make it more appealing, usable, and so on, but clearly something else won out.
There is ALREADY social media crap at the top of the page...just add those that aren't there already up there too. Sheesh.

Also, those of us on phones, with a small enough space as it is, can't see what we're posting very well, without minimizing our reply window even smaller.
It would be nice to have the option to close it.
Too much screen clutter has turned me into more of a lurker these days

I'm with you on this one--social media every time you turn around
My husband nor I do that [we don't even have a smartphone. LOL]
In fact, ATS is the only site where I interact with people and it's not the same as FB/Twitter
Like another poster stated, if they have the icons at the top, why are they needed on the side??

In this day and age the last thing you would want is to force people to zoom. This isn't a solution ya know.
