Order of foodpickle questions?
When I go to foodpickle to browse the questions, the default order in which they appear is the order in which they were last answered. It would make sense to me for the default display to be the order in which they were asked, particularly since my computer seems not to want to change the order of appearance when I click the "sort by" tab to choose "asked." Anyone else experiencing this problem? Or is my computer being weird again?

I occasionally check out the "unanswered" tab because i hate to see people not getting a response to their question.
Thanks Peter, as always, for your hard work!!
Indeed, we seem to have some problems with that "asked/answered" toggle on the Foodpickle. Honestly, it's used by SO few people, and we have so many bigger fish to fry in the upcoming weeks that we might have to remove it for a bit until we can make it a priority.
As long as I have all of you devoted 'Picklers I'd like to ask a question. Do any of you other than Susan G use the "Unanswered" tab? It's another aspect of the page that's used by SO few that we're thinking of removing it to simplify things overall.
I agree with the discomfort (!) with silly and senseless questions. I wish people would be more specific and give more information in their questions. "Popular pickles" now is much better than it used to be (same questions for over a year?), but maybe popular should be a reflection of answers rather than views.
Peter and Co., thank you for letting us run amuck here! (Spell check doesn't like that, but I do!) ...and for the new edit -- I've used it already.
Maybe we could have the "popular pickles" replaced with the "recently answered." I mean, "how to boil water" is pretty ridiculous. And "is my garlic press evil?" haha. well, yeah, if it's spitting pea soup. These pickles may be "popular" but are they essential?
My "sort by" doesn't work either.
