I was wandering why the free gear thread is the only forum section that does not go from newest to oldest like other sections?

I'm confused...All threads go from oldest (at the beginning) to newest (at the end). The Free Gear Thread is no different...

Let me rephrase that. All sections of forum go from newest to oldest. This is great for somethings like used gear for sale or things relevant to your region of the country. It would seem like threads like the free gear thread would be more efficient from newest to oldest. I was wondering why they were not like that.

Because the amount of effort you just put into making this thread and posting twice is more than the effort to skip to the end of the free gear thread, thereby undermining any efficiency gained.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
