I see some usefulness of the STICKY note feature, like in the Seed Exchange Forum. But, now more are being added here and there like advertisements (recently in the Botany Forum, for instance). GardenWeb has enough advertisements already! The use of unnecessary STICKY notes is distracting and annoying. I hope in the future they will be used only when necessary, and, that they will be removed after a brief period from where they have been placed unnecessarily.
