Last Post links should be Go To First New Post!

The more I use this site (and the Painter Factory site), I realize the "Last Post" links on the forum are pretty much a useless feature.


When I click on a message I either want to read the very first message, or the first newest post if there's a bunch of replies...I can't think of any time that I'd want to read only just the last post in a bunch of new replies.


Does anyone here find the Last Post links actually useful?
