Yes--I thought about that, but I figured that most of the "building" would take place in the form of replies, rather than new postings. True, there may be some advantage to having the ability to build on previous posts with new posts. But, this advantage,perhaps, is outweighed by having to scroll all the way down to get to the new posts.


p.s. Just visited your campus. Though I grew up in the 'burbs, it was only my second time there. It's been a while, and I was once again amazed at its beauty.
