I dont know when this appeared. (but seems to be about the same time the new posts counter vanished). What is the point of it ? because it seems utterly useless. Top of my list (or everyones list ?) is a topic not posted in since October. After that a couple from last week and the week before, then topics untouched since August ! This is not Facebook, or that home for Twits, so lets not try and pretend to be - with "trending topics".
