@wzeallor – These match thresholds are only displayed for admins who have logged in (such as yourself) and are never shown to visitors. I removed the option as all the users I talked to just left it on. Do you have a particular reason to hide this from even yourself?
I second OP for returning option. I have tight area for displaying related posts and numbers mostly get on new line, effectively doubling block height. Log out each time I need to look how it is working for a visitor – no fun at all.
@wzeallor, @rarst, well, you guys won’t have to worry about it too long… the next revision will use a templating system so it’ll be super easy to completely remove the scores if you’d like, to make them HTML comments or whatever. That should be coming in a month or so.
In the mean time, though, sorry for the inconvenience. I’m just working on cutting down on the number of options.
