    1) Can we it collapsible and remember on our account if it's collapsed or not? I like to hit ctrl-end and skip the ranting sometimes :D

    2) (and my actual suggestion) Can there be a date limit on this section? Sure it's usefull toknow there are related threads, but pulling up archived stuff from 2003 isn't usually relevant to the conversation at hand and could result in some thread necromancy if they aren't locked. And Necromancy is bad, just ask @Ashlynn_L

    1. I don't know how to make it remember the collapsing choices unfortunately.
    2. Let me look into this. Several others have made the same report.

    I can't find a way to limit how old of threads it will reference, but we can disable it for specific boards. The feature is supposed to help you find relevant information. It may only be useful in certain forums though. For example, the similar threads was disabled for the trade boards because old threads never have any importance for trading purposes. Let us know if you have any other suggestions or feedback.
