Hi all,

I never changed prefferences anywhere and after some puzzling time I found out what was funny.
The list of subjects is orderred 'Newest first' which is normal. But within a thread the default is also 'Latest post goes on top', which in my opinion is at the least funny. So far every messageboard on this planet (only one I visited so far) starts with the oldest post on top of page 1.

I did camp under a rock for the last two days so insights may have changed in the mean time.

Am I the only person who finds this weird?
