People like me, who see all the AUE threads. Presumably you chose not to
look at this thread, but I find it efficient to keep hitting the space

GG shows it as "You marked this thread for abuse," and though clicking to the
nest unread thread still takes me to the first unread message in it, I don't
look at it unless I notice that an actual person sent it (in this case, you
were the first of three).
I am not convinced that "consulting" was the right word in this context.
The posters to it, obviously, weren't reading it, but it's surprising that you
or anyone else here were.
