Option to sort answers by Age

Currently answers can be sorted by Score or Activity:

Buttons to sort answers by Score or Active

I'd like to be able to also sort them by Age. Would this be useful to anyone else?

I posted this feature request because I'd like to see the option to sort by Age, for those occasions where I'd find it useful or interesting.

I definitely do not want to change the default sorting order. I like the current default of sorting by Score. I would still use Score and Active most frequently, even if sorting by Age were available.

The order that answers (and comments) are displayed should be chronological so that the reader can follow how things went by default. If the user wants to rely on consensus or popularity to determine what order to read information then he can select "Score" or "Active" (sic.)

The chronological order should not need any justification besides the fact that this is how threads are displayed in thousands of sites around the internet. The user EXPECTS this to be the order unless they take some action.

EDIT: I keep getting the feeling that the users wishes are always secondary here at Codidact. Relatively trivial UI features are ignored in an effort to force conformity. We live in a world where there are many types of users, there are almost as many use cases. For essentially no coding cost (the button already occurs in the post listing at least on meta) a requested feature could be added that at least two people would use. Instead top down didacts are quoted as good things. The trend feels like Apple and SE where the 'owners' decide what the users WANT and the users have no say in the matter.

I would like to point out that the top down control is a result of commercial marketing interests and propaganda techniques which were supposed to be ABSENT from Codidact, why does the heavy handed "we are the boss" and know how you want to use the system prevail here?

I agree comments should remain chronological (1 comment)
Codidact isn't a forum (and even forums sort by popularity) (2 comments)
