But if I want to see 3-4 simultaneous conversational threads, I look from top-to-bottom and pick out the ones I'm looking for (or the ones with the best recent posters).
I'm racking them up today. 2 more to break the 150 barrier IIRC.
I agree about the bolded as well. Can you get extra points for a CR from me?
I'm just usually to dispose of the unreads at the bottom so that I can get to the more active threads and not have other stuff hanging over my head.
I never, ever mark all threads as read. I'm scared of what I miss. I do frequently skip pages of long threads, though.
