Likewise you probably weren't too bothered about going on the internet until somebody invented it. You probably weren't too bothered about having a web forum until someone created one. You probably weren't too bothered about being able to split topics until somebody created the function.
"I don't see the need" is a valid individual response; but it isn't a strong or impassioned argument and as such adds little insight into the value of an idea. Unimpassioned opinions have never been a reason to hold back progress.
