    [quote user="Nagesh"]Makes logical sense since operating system user names cannot have spaces in their usernames.[/quote] Which operating systems? Shitty open source ones, maybe. I got a space in my Windows username right now.

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]But Home does not work. So it's 50%, which in FOSSland is an A+.[/quote] Ooop, you're right, I spoke too soon. It works if and only if you start at the top and read all the way down. If you start somewhere in the middle, Home's busted as shit.

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]Did you actually try them? Because they don't work.[/quote] I hate to say anything positive here, but I have to say "End" works for me. So does Page Up and Page Down, shockingly. Although the scrollbar thumb jumps around like when I feed my cat meth.

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]Are you serious? You find pagination confusing? Endless scrolling is a hundred times worse. This is so broken. Every time I scroll back down it thinks it's the first time I've seen the bottom post. And there's no way to jump to the top or bottom directly. Endless scrolling has to be the ...

    [quote user="Alex Papadimoulis"]I don't think most people use their real names as their username, so it's not really impacting very many people.[/quote] Whether or not they do, they certainly should be able to.
