I don't mind reading through how-to/journey threads. In fact, I dig it too much (analysis paralysis). What sucks is having to scroll through pages to find the OP's follow up posts detailing the process amongst all the thanks-alot's or "I-have-a-few-questions-about-this-method's muddying up the clarity of it. How come nobody ever created (or if it exist, uses) a forum that gives option that allows a reader to see only post from the OP. Considering the fact that (s)he will quote the questions/comments of those (s)he decides to respond to, doesn't seem like much would be missed by doing so and for those that say it might, I'd be willing to take that risk to concentrate the main content. Just a thought... FWIW: I did try the "search within the thread" function, using OP's username for search criteria but that only shows an abbreviated version of each post.
