I see the order of opinions is now defaulting to MHO order. This means that the asker will probably just read the first one or two answers and ignore the rest. Which will mean that the vast majority of GAGers are totally wasting their time in replying!! This site is going to kill itself!!
What do other GAGers think? Is it GAG's biggest mistake?
It's still biased towards the opposite gender, too, but I think even more so. I was quite content just to read the reply from @BellePepper.
I agree - I am not sure about these sorts - In fairness if I am interested in a question I will read all replies - I am worried about MHOs people will tend give MHO to people near the top with already high ratings meaning people lower down will never rise.
I don't really think that many people will do that when choosing MHO. I mean myself when selecting MHO's I don't select the first or second answer I happen to see. I read through everything and then decide. I'm sure only really lazy people will skip that part. But yeah in all honesty it's a bit weird and I'm not sure what the reason behind it is.
I haven't even noticed that until your question! Does that mean the opinions of people you follow doesn't show up at the top anymore and follow that mho order too? o_O I noticed you can at least switch the order to xper level or time.
Well, it's really up to the asker to select the MHO, doesn't mean that other people wasting their time, and I am sure no asker would just like ignore the opinions posted by other members, I don't think an asker would do that, sure an asker will be curious to know all the opinions, selecting an MHO can be an asker's choice, but I think the asker will read and not ignore after reading just one or two.
