    I am receiving the RSS feed for this site via Thunderbird. I am having several problems:

    1: Post subject has post user prepended to it. This makes trying to sort posts by subject totally futile. Even trying to sort by thread is hopeless as the only times threads are created is when the same user posts to the same forum.

    2: When clicking on the LOG IN link, I am taken to the log in page and then dropped at this site's home page rather than being taken to the post that I want to comment on.

    3: The search function seems to be a joke. The post title was "I am SO new at this...help? Installing autofocus theme" and searching for "autofocus theme" did NOT include that post. Nor is there any way to select a particular forum to search. It always searches ALL forums.

    Other than the above, I like the site and the information it provides. It is just a pain trying to get at the information.

    I'm reading the RSS feeds in Thunderbird. As I said, it's impossible to group threads together so I end up with multiple copies of the same page and have to manually go through each one and try to catch all the duplicates. Otherwise I am reading the same posting several times. Considering I have a few hundred posts a day, this is a total time waste and a pain.

    Why are posters prepended to topic titles anyway? The poster is already listed in the sender field of the feed.

    Ok, I give up. I will have over 600 messages in one forum. When I delete duplicated messages I will still have over 500 messages. Of those, most of them ARE STILL duplicates.

    So I am turning off all the RSS feeds here and will no longer read them.

    I still have no idea who's completely idiotic idea it was to program things this way nor why someone doesn't just remove that little piece of code.
