This site is just the opposite and is, quite honestly, in my opinion, terrible. I prefer to read the original question first to see if it interests me. If it does, then I go through it. Just the title does not usually tell me if it is of interest to me. Having to scroll through all the replies can be a royal pain.

I think this should be changed.
Paul, I too am a member of other sites and what you say is, for the most part true. I have been a member of this site for 3 years and read this site everyday, several times a day...

In my opinion, this site is fantastic and much prefer it to any other site. I feel the core group of folks on this site and the frequent contributors are top notch genuinely open, honest and willing people. I am generally familiar with the subject matter of a post as I have most certainly read thru the first day it was posted, or shortly thereafter. If that post topic does not interest me, or no longer interests me, then I don't often times ever go back to it. Thusly I typically do not do a lot of scrolling thru past successive posts. If perhaps I might be curious as to what a particular member has offered as a comment to the post, I just mouse click on the little icon to the right of the member's name on the daily (current) post. That brings me right to his/her post and I don't have to scroll thru every thing else.

Obviously I think the Squarebirds.org should be left the same as it is and always has been. I have been a member for 3 years and have 400 some posts. Others have been members for much, much longer and they have literally thousands of posts. In my three years, I don't recall ever seeing this concern or request being offered or suggested before.

I guess it all depends what one is looking for in a forum's format. Prior to 2008 I spent the bulk of my time on another, but since I was introduced to this forum by Ray, I have concentrated my reading and reponses to Squarebirds.org.

This otta be an interesting dialogue with further member's responses. I can hardly wait!
