Bring news forum posts back to news pages
posted at 8/30/2012 2:21 PM EDTRemoving the top news forum posts from the corresponding news pages was not a bright idea. There are essentially two sorts of forum posters: conversation posters and issue posters. Many of the latter were attracted to Globe forums because headlines of the latest ten posts played at the same level as news headlines. Few if any issue posters are likely to be retained by buried forums that appeal mainly to conversation posters. This is not a technical but a policy issue. No doubt technical issues with forums will be worked out over time.
