    Default How many people use the Live new Posts?

    The iSpy looks addicting. Do people sit there staring at the Live New Posts? It's just...woah.

    I find it to be dreadfully annoying- I don't like to watch words MOVE on my screen unless I'm scrolling through and causing them to do so.

    Plus- I don't care to have threads that I have nothing to say to waved in front of my face

    I do. I leave it open in the browser. It's most efficient if I have already checked everything else out, which I have.

    Yeah, that is about all that I look at most of the time.

    I used to use it a lot actually. Now I just rely on the new post feature and do a quick scan, before deciding which thread I will read. The ispy is reserved for those nights were I'm insanely bored and just feel like cranking out short posts to get my conversational needs dealt with.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    I don't use it, because the Movements are senseless. When it is static (Unread Topic Sites) it's better, because I can take my Time to look thru the Topics and open the Stuff I am interested in in a new Tab. When it moves I might miss something very Interesting.

    Same. I want to control what shows up. I don't read half the threads here, so a moving, near real-time update of all posts as they're made doesn't appeal to me.

    Seems like a cross between "New Posts" and "Who's Online". I guess I'm in the habit of using those two instead. There may be capabilities in "Live" which I'm unaware of, though.
