You don't post comments on DDMS enough, it also requires a wait.
Which causes me to think at times that my comment did not register so I send it again only to find that now TWO comments have posted.  AHA!  Now I understand why I sometimes see the same person posting the same message twice but with an altered wording. 

Perhaps the system can send an automatic response after each DDMS comment submit that says something like 'Your comment was received.  Our messenger is crawling over to the computer now to post it.'

it used to be that your message would appear on your computer, but not on anyone else's. not sure why they took away that feature.

Maybe when they took that away they added a feature which I DO appreciate.  Before if I went a page back to check something in the thread while posting a reply, then forwarded back to my reply page, I would have lost my entire reply.  Now, the reply is still there.  Thanks, much appreciated.

That might have more to do with your browser
This is for the perfectionist in me

If the first six board explanations on the DDF home page were three lines shorter in total, the Credit Card board title would show up on the display page instead of having to scroll down for it. 

It would be sooo much more convenient.  This is an easy one to fix on the spot just by taking out a few words.

Do most of you see the Credit Cards title on your Home Page or does it stop at On the Road (or Up in the Air)?

my laptop stops at Up in the Air, unless i zoom the browser out one notch.

FWIW, I almost never visit that page. I'm always on Show unread posts since last visit. or Show new replies to your posts.

+1, except: I use it when I know for what I am looking, but don't remember the exact keywords for the search (which takes too long anyways).  Also, once I have already looked at the page once, it will have disappeared form those two lists.

I search my browser's history all the time, for thread's I'm looking for. In firefox you can just press alt-d and start typing words from the thread title, and it will give suggestions.
