in thread Listing Best Replies First: destroys threads and annoys readers

> the best reply often refers to a previous reply which has been suppressed

Please show an example where the best reply refers to a "suppressed" one - and this without explicitly linking to it.

Should be easy if this happens that "often".

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    The "best" reply to join string in 2D array refers to a previous reply 3 times but the referenced post appears after the reference! This attempt to simulate quality by destroying conversations is a really bad idea. Logging in is no solution cause most of your traffic is anonymous...

      (S)He does have a point.

      I once noticed my colors were wrong, meaning i hadnt been seen as logged in, and realized i had gotten to perlmonks.org rather than www.perlmonks.org and that must have messed up my "is logged in cookie". If that would work for you too then this https://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=1233311 and this https://perlmonks.org/?node_id=1233311 link may show you the differnce without having to log out and in again.

      While the point was made, since the reply was to the OP rather than the post that was mentioned in it, it is hard to determine how things could have been better handeled via "Replies are listed 'Best First'.". I do understand the points made for and against this policy, and kinda side with "best first" for non logged in visitors tho.

      how do you know this? Do you count bots?

      A reply falls below the community's threshold of quality. You may see it by logging in.
      refers to a previous reply 3 times

      nope, it says "The answer Anonymous Monk said", theres only one anon post in that thread, no ambiguity, no problem. your just butthurt your anon reply isnt first, tough luck, make an account

        And that doesn't even seem to be an example of what the OP is talking about. The one post by anonymonk has a pretty good reputation and isn't hidden from anonymous visitors! So "suppressed" is completely bogus.

        I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
