We have a thread in our forums that many of the participants refer to as "The THREAD." It's a long running thread that started with a simple question: Are the posted questions getting worse?" What was initially a rant about how many of the volunteers on the site complaining about seeing the same questions over and over has grown into something else. As of the time I'm writing this, the thread has:
- over 750 pages
- over 7500 posts
- over 150,000 views
That's one thread that seems to grow and grow. I've watched it go from rants, to movie reviews, book suggestions, well wishes for fellow posters, and a place to find some humorous posts. Or problem posts that one expert is asking others to take a look at.
I don't often participate, but I keep an eye on it, and it often makes me smile as I read the ongoing discussion that continues on between friends.
