Personally, I think it would be a very good idea to let people choose which threads are going to be displayed to them.
Lately, I have noticed that I am finding the thought of having a look at what's going on at ATS increasingly off-putting. (Initially, I couldn't
wait for it!)
And the reason for that is the simple fact that, to see anything that I find interesting, I have to scan the titles of all the threads displayed.
That might seem like a minor annoyance. But the fact is the sheer ignorance and aggressiveness encapsulated in many titles - and yes, even improper
punctuation and misspelling (fuzzy writing = fuzzy thoughts) - can become VERY depressing over time.
(And it's no wonder, really: if even a website with so many visitors from all over the world can show so few people equipped for a truly
stimulating - not to mention respectful - discussion and exchange of opinions, then the global situation seems pretty bleak.)
Would it be possible to arrange for a feature that would enable one to personally choose the threads to be displayed?
Thanks for the attention.
