I use that on sites where I'm a moderator or administrator, because I need to keep tabs on all active discussion areas. On this site, I typically visit only five areas -- the three handgun areas, general discussion, and legal & politics. It doesn't helpme at all to see a list of ALL new posts and then have to sort through them to see which are in the areas I care about.
I'm sorry, but I just don't see this change as a benefit.
