  • I agree, this gets annoying. But I don't think it's the relative times in and of themselves. It's the enormous loss of precision that always seems to accompany this design pattern.

    If it said "23 minutes ago" and "55 minutes ago", I would be fine with it.

    • You're right. As I began writing, I realized it wasn't so much the relative aspect as it was the approximate aspect of it.
