1. It's useless.

As it's not curated, the vast majority of links is entirely irrelevant to given post. Machines are too ***, even if you call it AI.

2. It's harmful.

It provides false keywords for external search machines such as google, making it harder to find genuine content.

3. given 1, and 2, it's just pure waste of bandwidth.

A vote from @Tesla DeLorean  in favour of keeping it - I'd tend to agree:

I do kind of like having this, not sure how good the heuristics are, but it helps to find other threads.

It shouldn't list the current threads, that's just circular, and makes no sense.

On mobile it's at the end of the page.

Needs up/down voting to improve relevance metrics to teach the algorithm.

That's from my thread suggesting that the 'Solved' flag should be include in the 'Related Content' list.

Hello @waclawek.jan , 

Great example of sharing an opposing view on the same feature. Currently, we are looking into the feature enchantment brought by@Andrew Neil but we are happy to hear more views on this. 

Thanks a lot for sharing yours!

Like a lot of things on these corporate "forums" there just seem to be so many missed opertunities to build anything properly. As Andrew indicates having a solved flag and some kind of up/down sentiment, or up/down relevance metric.

Everyone seems scared of negative voting, but there needs to be some way to deweight things that are unhelpful or wrong.

If there are bullying issues let's address those directly,  but let's not cripple the ability to train the system as to what bad content / associativy is.

Absolutely!

Perhaps some of these features can be suppressed via check box items the user chooses in their "View / Presentation" type settings

Perhaps as a Low Bandwidth / Minimal Clutter setting?

Having the engine "Score" how relevant it thinks something is, might enlighten as to "How" it's working, or if something needs tweaking.

Having the Post Count, and Kudos might also be a good metric to be outputting
