Forum responses not useful or organized
The Forum is really hard for people to use. You can't quote an original question in a response, and your response is not threaded with the original question. So a person must read through all responses to get to the one they want.
Needs better organization.
As it is, the Forum is not very useful.
Joe Martinka commented
I completely agree. A back and forth discussion by members is inhibited by the forum gadget's inability to show a reader that a response has a later quote that might amplify or follow-up on a response's question or statement. It lacks basic forum threading. Makes it useless to us in many valuable ways. At present, a forum is not a forum, but a list of barely organized comments.

I'm adding to my comment: I have read the "reply" instructions for the forum. If I do the "quote" reply, the quote does not appear in a grey box, as it does in the instructions.
Plus, the quote appears first, in a larger font, and the answer is later, in a smaller font.
It is really hard to tell that it is a response to a previous post.
