Does anyone find it hard when composing a full reply and not being able to scroll down the page to view the previous thread?

I more offen than not open up a new tab to reload the thread to remember what I need to chat about when replying. Does anyone think there might be a benefit to requesting this feature? 
It might stop a lot of post edits.

Just curious in your opinions...

+1, I rarely use full reply for that very reason. I'm a kid of the 80's ad 90's, I have the attention span and memory of a domesticated pet. Doesn't need to show all content from the complete page, just a stripped down text version, perhaps in an iframe or similar.

I post in a couple of other sites where the full thread is shown when you are composing your post.  I find it frustrating at times when I cannot scroll down the thread to review the posts I am replying to here.  If this feature could be implemented I think it would be a good addition to Geekzone.

If I remember correctly, it actually used to be this way.
I can't remember exactly when it changed, but when it did I suddenly found myself doing the same as the OP, opening the full thread in a new tab to make sure I was responding with correct details.

+1 to having it back that way. Or some variation at least. :)
