Feature Request - Add Select all button for 'My Bookmarks and Watches'

Hi All,

I have a feature request for 'My Bookmarks and Watches' menu. Once a user clicks 'My Bookmarks and Watches' menu the list of all bookmarked topics are displayed and one has to click on each record one by one to remove the watches which is a cumbersome exercise.

Having gone through the process, I feel it would be more prudent and user friendly to have a 'select all' button that would select all bookmarks and user can selectively deselect topics he want to continue watching. This new feature can be added in addition to existing option; need less to say that there should be 'deselect all' button also .

Good idea. I'll add it to the backlog of items to be worked on.
