IMHO what's far more a nuisance than titles in news and the like is FORKING!

You can’t comment when you want for fear of forking. You can’t reedit your comment for massive fear of forking. Then even when you don’t do those things and you get more than 2 people talking and you get gang bang forking!

Only way I can see to solve it though is an atomized stream. And that’s a solid week of work.

Yes but forking is real … it is what happens.  

I fucking hate it when i am forked … but that is as it should be … it is all about timing.   I think this is a real improvement. 

Thing is when you are forked, you are forked … so look at what happened with the other fork.   Were you just trying to edit a spelling … well then what i do is delet my unimportant edit and leave the real conversation flow on the others comment.   Sometimes it is a real fork … in that the coversation is now inquiring down two differnt threads .. so when that is so … let it be.

Yes. It is a drastic improvement and I agree those are the best ways to deal with it. And still, I am thinking ahead to how amazing it will be when comments recombine on their own quite magically

Just saying that forking bothers me personally far more than all that other stuff combined.

Is there a chirp associated with the arrival of more news . I hear one otherwise with Windows 10 as does T, but I hear it a whole lot when the news updates.

Yep. It’s the first part of SOS in binary as sent from the voyager spacecraft. Seth found it.

Cute! But, it is really irritating when I have my headphones on or listening to something else.  Could it be made optional?

LOL … not according to some. It would require some place to store optional settings for an actual person. LOL … but you guys already suspect something is cooking in that oven. devildevildevil
