I didn't realize having one thread pinned at the top of the page was such an inconvenience for your viewing.Ah, OK. I wasn't aware that "E-M1 vs E-M1 mk II burst rates with Four Thirds lenses" was any more interesting for newcomers than the thousands of other subjects discussed in this forum. For me it is just a waste of space at the top of the screen.
Anyone who happens be particularly interested in this rather exotic subject can just search for it - like we all do when we need info about this or that.
Maybe you could create a poll to gather other's feelings on the topic to see if it's as much of an inconvenience for them as it is for you, and we could use the data gathered from a larger subset of users to make a decision, rather than basing it on one person's personal feelings?
