Personally, also, I would prefer people not address their answers to others directly quite so much, it reminds me too much of IRC, which the CB is not. Its a conversation for all, not a set of individual discussions happening in the same room by coincidence.

In some ways I agree. But like it or not this is by design their *nature* and the type or style of communication they inherently end up involving. They are a lot of individual dicussions concurrently occuring with everyone else putting in their 2 cents when they feel like it. I think best to recognise and enhance upon these characteristics.

If you miss something, you're unlikely to see it in the CB itself anyway, since that only holds the last 10 lines, and if theres a lot going on, those last seconds.

Again I agree, yet another reason I feel for the usefulness of the suggestion.
