I am thinking "What ... another thread about sight-reading, shall I find the link to the stuff I wrote last year? Or would be more sensible to just go to bed"
Matters on sight-reading fill the threads because many musicians feel that it a comparative weakness in their musical armoury. Were the ability to improvise called upon to a similar degree, then that
would be the topic of the day.
I don't fear the impending Quick Study for my DipABRSM, in fact I surmise that that for LRSM wouldn't fill me with dread either and I'd hope to make a good stab at the FRSM contribution too. However, ask me to improvise on the simplest, most well-known of tunes and I'd be petrified, because I've never practised the art.
