How can it help communitywise?
Date headers help your visitors and users to get a clear view which discussions have been updated on what day. Starting from "Today" to "Yesterday" and using specific dates their (appearance can be configured with PHP Strftime) "Date Separators" makes discussion lists visually easier to read by adding breaking list items with the discussions items that had their last comment on that specific day. With CSS you can design the date separator yourself.
