the Similar Threads feature seems to suggest random threads instead of similar threads.

the feature seems to be pointless. finding similar threads is much easier to do by using the search feature.

example:

I'm replying in Off Topic> What are you doing / did you do today?

Similar Threads

The similar threads option is based on thread titles, not the contents inside unfortunately.

Notice in your example, all similar threads have at least a matching word to this thread's title.

It's not very effective :???:

I wouldn't say it's useless. I've actually found other threads that were basically the same topic I was going to post, and decided not to post it. It actually works for me in the mod lounge fairly often. It's probably more useful for noobs in the tech sections than anything.
