"Similar Threads" Feature

    I just wanted to point out a feature that I just found. I don't know if it is new or if I have just been oblivious to it...

    When reading a thread, go to the VERY bottom and there is a section for "Similar Threads" that (I would venture to guess) matches words and phrases to find other threads that would be of assistance for reference or to see other discussions on the topic.

    Does anyone else have any information for how this works? I'd be interested to know if there is a time period limit for how long the threads continue to show up in the "Similar Threads" box after they have last been responded to.

    This is a great feature! If it is new, Clarity, as well as whoever suggested it should be applauded. If I have simply overlooked it, maybe others have as well and this will bring it to your attention.

    Yeah, I noticed it the other day. Don't know how it works, but I suspect it is a seach engine that looks for key words from threat titles.

    Very cool.
