Well, if I could collapse it with a single click, it would be much 
easier to scroll past it and get to the thing I'm looking for. I didn't 
say remove it, just give me the option to hide it. ;-)

Oh goodie... So it's there to keep the machines happy?

It's just tedious that every single time I load up this page, I have to 
spend 30 seconds manually collapsing everything so I can get to the 
module I actually want to look at. (The alternative is to manually 
scroll the 13-page list my hand. Not very funny...)

OK, so... can we add a pair of "expand all"/"collapse all" buttons then?
