Because that's all I'm seeing right now. Anyone who's a mainpage author has their post automatically featured in "highlights," and everyone else automatically gets sent to the pile of filthy commoners, awaiting their turn to be rescued like in Quint's USS Indianapolis story in Jaws.
I dunno man. I don't know if I can put up with this new interface. The one thing I find entertaining about here is making silly comments, and if they're always going to be buried in a sea of trolls and miscellaneous dipshits, then what's the point? What's left then? To come here and listen to people gush about the kind of love life I'll never have so I can get all angsty and depressed and then go scorch chemical elements symbols into my arm with a Bunsen burner TO TAKE AWAY THE PAIN?
