Forum spy, I don't get it

Maybe I'm just being thick, but that's it for?

Its a feature that automatically updates and displays new posts in each forum as they're created. So that folks can get a "live" view of what is being talked about in any forum.

So you can see posts and threads in real time. It's handy to see when you might be on the forums for a while or are looking for a quick response. Or to just see what news is getting a lot of attention.

I love Forum Spy, allows me to see new posts in my favorite categories. I don't have to go to each category one by one it's all in one area...

It's a great feature. I currently have 41 forums excluded from forum spy so I don't have to see stuff I am not interested in... .

I used to have nearly that and had nothing to read.
Take out the iPhone and iPad forums and this place is a bit dead.

I once attended an epic usage of the forum spy within a [WW] game. That was the first time I heard about it and also the last. Has some Matrix flair, though.

Forum Spy is far and away my fav MR feature. Every website needs a feature like it. Love to see what's happening live.

Hahaha, now I'll get it how you're so super fast. Kind of late, but still.
