This is totally off-topic Pete, but I didn't want to start an extra thread for it. Don't you find it interesting to try an guess which threads will catch on fire? Some of the wierdest ones turn into wild discussion/stories. And some, that seem like amusing topics, never take-off. Amazing.
Yes. The value of a particular thread cannot be measured by it's sheer length. Quality supercedes quantity.
That's why I like to check the "old" threads sometimes,
because the valuable ones can get pushed quickly to the bottom of my list. Maybe there's a way to re-sort
my display using a different sorting key than "most recently posted."
