Anyone ever noticed that Sticky threads never show up when browsing via Mobile?

Specifically, the gigantic forklift thread in the motors area is unfindable via mobile.

Just me or everyone?

When viewing a section that has sticky posts in it, in the Enhanced Mobile View, there is a yellow icon that looks like the location button for Google Maps. (Right hand corner)

This will open the sticky topics in a sidebar where you can see them listed.

So, on a forum, moderators will choose to make topics "sticky" so that newcomers can find them first.

By hiding them away where no one would ever look for, find, or especially "come across them first", you've defeated the point of having a thread be "sticky".

Sticky threads are less visible than non-sticky threads in the mobile view - they should just not be raised to the top of the list. I checked a section which has a recent update to a sticky (EV High Voltage, Turning it on and off: in Technical Discussion), and it doesn't show in chronological order the normal list at all - only in the special sticky list. That's idiotic.
