I have an idea. Maybe someone flagging a thread should bump that thread.
Many here have said that the reason they flag and then also leave a short comment is to bump a thread they deem worthy of attention.
If a flag also bumped the thread (makes sense anyway if you think about it), it might help cut down on one-liners and back-scratching type posts?

No, I haven't read this entire thread.
I'm here to ask that you not punish the succinct.

Sometimes a single line can say more than a whole paragraph; no self-respecting mod would remove it, and won't.

QUESTION: Could the thread title be inserted in bold between each post or along side or something?
I know that's like "holding a toddler's hand" - - - but its so easy to just get caught up in the conversation of the previous poster. And forget the point of the thread.
I do try to catch myself - Oops! Then scroll up to the top to read the thread title again.
As far as short posts - - I hate "filler" words and "circle" points (saying the exact same thing/repeating several times with various wording) . I type what I have to say - - then go back and remove any unnecessary words.
Length does not necessarily make a good post. Content does.
