What does being friends with someone on TAM do? I am friends with my wife here, but it hasn't seemed to have changed, let alone improved, anything. That aside, what's the point? What are the benefits (ha ha)?
I think it would be nice if it automatically alerted you when a friend makes a thread. Sort of like fb( I know-GASP). But then you'd know when the people you have become 'friends' with have something to say. Afterall, you became friends with them b/c you like at least most of the things they say, no?
