Is it my imagination, or do some posters around here have some really thin skin?
I'm sure the mods know what they're doing when they merge a thread.
Talented people are often protective of their work. The board has what cereal_killer needs right now anyway. He needs OP/ED writers and what better way to find them then to let them compete.
You merge the threads and you lose the quality. Several things make up the value of a board and one is the ability to compete.
As I said allowing competition RAISES standards on its own. The OP/ED writers are already here but you are not going to know them if you cut your forest to see a lone tree.
That might even beat out "waaah-- a headline said "truck attack" instead of "individual person-driver using a truck attack" for the most absurd stretch of the weak.
Sometime rearranging posts through a merge garbles the context of the posts.
Yeah, that happens when somebody responds without quoting who they're responding to, ass-uming that theirs will be the next post and always stay the next post. Not a safe assumption.
Ending the rule against flooding with multiple threads on the same topic would simply be a windfall to the trolls who delight in doing this sort of thing.
