We need a way for the community to flag posts of importance/interest within a thread. For those of you who have used woot.com they do something similar where they highlight discussions that are deemed of interest to the current Woot.
Once or twice a year I'll stumble into a long thread with lots of replies and have to dig through twenty pages or so to find out the gist of the story.
I just fell into this again; someone replied to an old thread about Core IP Network's FBI raid and I read about six pages of posts before realizing this was five months old. Now I'm curious to see how this played out but don't have time to filter through the misc comments.
Ok, maybe it's not the *most* important feature request of all time but it'll certainly help me read more of the WHT goodness.
