I see all these postings suggesting having a special section at the back of the plane for families. Are you kidding? I can just see me with my toddler and infant, lugging my stroller (I can't use a tiny little umbrella stroller), carseat, diaper bag, etc., all the way to the back of the plane. I don't feel sorry for anyone who doesn't like to sit near a kid on a plane. No one likes screaming babies. But you can't segregate them in the back of the plane. Not a good solution.
But, then again, you could put the kids section in the back. Then, make a special section for the handicapped, another for tall people, another for overweight people, another for smelly people, another for people who don't speak English, another for people who like to talk to their seat neighbors, another for people who prefer to sleep or read quietly.
That's a bad precident to set. You'd be much better off just going back to the numbered boarding passes you used to have and let people check in in the order they arrive.
See you when you fix this. I'll be waving from the Continental waiting area.
