If we can't sort by last reply, there is seriously no point in using these boards. I don't understand why that isn't the default anyways--it's how every other message board I've used works.
I hadn't noticed the post count thing, but that sounds annoying.
And I wasn't bothered by the FB links until I read this thread and now I'm worried I'll hit them by mistake too!
What an idiotic "update." I didn't think they could make the nest less user friendly but I think they've gone and done it. Wow.
