on top of a thread are a couple of buttons. Save to Profile, Email, Print, Share.
why when you select print does it not just print the thread? i found a thread that had 2 nice recipes and 2 really short posts.
i hit print and got 8 pages including headers, footers, links, sidebar pictures (Most Popular, etc).
2 pages of the thread with recipes and 6 wasted pages of useless paper wasting printout. this button seems no better than selecting the Print option in your browser
