The latest annoying forum trend

All of a sudden, in the past month or two, people in linear-threaded forums keep starting their post with a carat (^) to indicate that they're referring to the previous post.

Well no shit! That's the way the forum is structured! We've been getting along without this latest silly trend for years. Why now?

^ Ehh... it's nice to use them in succession when you referring to a post 2-3 up from yours.

Eh, they've started doing it on my site a long, long time ago.
