Right above the #1 on your first post is a dropdown that says "thread tools".

Click on that bad boy and all will be revealed.

Piece of cake, right? There are a few examples of it in the Trader Talk section, and I've seen a couple in the AMA forums.
You forgot about people getting butt hurt over things that arent any of their business. Other than that, you nailed it!
