    But Wanting Doesn'T Change Anything.

    Forgive me for yet another story about how things were back in the old days. But I'm mad right now. The fact that I'm not alone doesn't matter. I remember when this site first started, and this group was a big one. We would post things in here, mostly trivial things...and you...

    Two Weeks and Counting.

    It's very annoying that blocking a spammer,

    Can we bring back the feature

    that allows us to be notified of replies to comments of other people's answers to questions? No clue why it went away, but it was the only "improvement" worth anythything and now it's gone again.

    Just a small thing that could be added,

    that would be very convenient for us all. A little sign or box at the top of an experience group page, telling us if we've already posted there or not. It can't take that long to make or implement, and it would be pretty helpful. :)
