Discussion on: Why I hate Infinite Scrolling

Thing I hate most in infinite scrolling is that there are usually no means to save a position in an infinitely scrolling list to come back to it later. On an archive page of a typical 2000s web forum if I for whatever reason need to examine every thread, I can usually sort threads from oldest to newest and then and at any point I can bookmark my current position.

It's neat, and I used it many times, infinite scrolling won't let me do anything like that.
