Not sure when Yahoo added the feature to list by message rather than topic. Glad to see they recognized that the big change they made to their format, what was it 6 or 7 years ago or something, where you could just view by topic, was not in tune with how a lot of people like to go through the messages.
Haven't been happy with this new message board. Like to be able to see the originator of the message rather than the topic. I have found through my reading that certain readers can give you more information that is hel[ful than most others. Bearing that in mind I could skip some people when I was in a hurry and just read the one who I want.
