You need to understand also that the CMs try not to jump into a thread without a very
good reason since more often than not it causes the thread to derail from player expectations that the idea will be implemented since Blizzard "liked it". All threads are read, and the really good ones have little chance of being missed with both the CMs and MVPs reading the fora. This thread for example had already been flagged by the CMs well in its infancy, and when it got near its cap I asked Lylirra that the cap be lifted and extended so more players could give their input and ideas.
We see the posts. And sometimes even a post that looks "bad" to some players is still considered by the CMs and MVPs because there are good ideas and thoughts in there that stand on their own merit from a neutral viewpoint. If a thread's contents have merit, they're given consideration even if they aren't acknowledged by a CM.
