Frankly, it’s really annoying for those of us who have no interest in these types of threads, because there’re so many of them making the site more difficult to navigate.
I don’t really mind that they are automatically pinned on each college category. I would only see one if I purposely go to that category and pinning makes them easy to find for this year’s applicants.
What drives me crazy is that they show up in the Latest Posts. They have been 95% of the Latest Posts the past few days.
