  • What I don't like about absolute times is that everybody is forgetting to display the time zone. Or it would be nice if the time would be displayed in my local time zone (I think this should be possible using Javascript).

    • What I don't like about absolute timestamps is that even if someone show's the timezone, I'm supposed to be able to do timezone localisation in my head for all of the world's timezones.

      Relative time makes the real world time something that I as a regular human can actually understand.

      • Where in the world have you seen a site that displayed absolute timestamps in each individual poster's timezone, requiring you to convert, rather than just displaying all times in the viewer's timezone?
