Eclipse's Forum Needs To Get with It

Why is Eclipse's message board archive sooooo archaic?

http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/platform-debug-dev/msg01042.html

You read the issue backwards tolerating more and more layers of ">" cushioning. Then if you want to read the responses, you have to go down to the "Follow-Ups" section at the very bottom of the page and visit a separate page for each response.

Why doesn't eclipse consolidate all that information and make it presentable? They've already got the information organized as a hierarchy. Why can't they make it show up in a tree-thread view?

Also some css couldn't hurt.
