    AppleOutsider has been changed to Insider Lounge. Political Outsider is a subforum of that forum.

    That was a terrible choice.

    I bet we are losing a lot of people that may have posted in the political forum because they didnt even know it existed.

    They should have left things as they were

    For those that browse via View New Posts, it's visible most of the time.



    An arbitrary hierarchy isn't a great way to browse current topics anyway. So much burrowing down and back up again to the next forum.



    The only drawback being once a thread gets too old or inactive, you won't see it listed.



    Personally, I think View New Posts ought to be the default view, with a nice big link to the hierarchical view.

    ...but I also realize that goes against every web forum's standard out there.



    So I won't hold my breath
