I’m not sure how it might best be used or if it even presents the risk of being abused by some. However, I would think/hope it might encourage some people to first search for a subject before they start a new thread on something that has been already been addressed, maybe even within a short period of time.
I receive notices of each new topic, on the chance it might be something I have myself wondered about or now hope to learn from. However, I must say, sometimes I consider opting out of that feature because some days some people start some threads that simply leave me wondering… Why??
