Isn't the forum posts arranging confusing?

Well I get confused with how the posts gets ordered in the forum, it seems like it's ordered by the date/time of the last reply sent to the post and not by the date/time of the post itself, it confuses me because the order of the posts always change and I don't know anymore if there are new ones down or not or aahh... well maybe I'm used to the way of ordering in the newsgroup clients like Netscape Messenger.... but if anybody agree with me, can we ask the big ranchers to do this re-arrangment for us?
If you're all used to it, then I just have to get used to it too

Then how would we know if a new post was added to a thread? Every forum I have ever used works this way.

well you would see the number of replies to the post and you will know there are more replies added to the post, in the Netscape Messenger, it adds a little arrow icon to the post and makes it bold... well I guess it's me that's just used to the NewsGroups system not web forums.. I'll have to get used to it..
