Wow, that's a really cool feature! I don't think you're weird at all. Although most of my friends think I'm weird and random. It doesn't really bother me at all, because if I wasn't weird then I'd be like everyone else in my school.
It is a pretty handy tool. If I didn't subscribe to some of the threads, I would have never known that people replied. It's really too bad that some people don't know about this feature. Maybe more people would chat on the forum if they knew about this. Ha ha, I just realized this, but it's February 9th! It's hard to believe that last month was the 10th anniversary of MITM. Time flies by really fast!
