    Define "a lot". Why would anyone pay even minimum wage to post on the dozens, if not hundreds, of political forums on the Internet?

    Only one member, who is no longer here, was paid that I knew about.

    Yep. Once a thread is merged, it's over.

    It was a joke. Isn't that a running joke around here? That various individuals are paid to post articles from certain sites? Sheesh. Little slow are we?

    I agree that posters should use search feature, or at lease look to see if there is a recent thread for the topic that has already been created; however, i sespect that trying to educate people to do so (that don't already do so) will be an exercise in futility.

    Half the people on this forum can't even read a paragraph, trying to enforce that they go search for something, wow, I've told people to go look for the evidence to back themselves up, and it usually ends in insults... I'm not sure you understand the forces at work here.

    Why can't posts be automatically forwarded to the main thread?

    And good grief, why does everything have to go in Politics or Current Events? In part, this is why adding even more forums doesn't seem like a good idea.

    I suggest that if a poster puts up a thread that is clearly a duplicate of a thread currently on the 1st page of that forum - IOW easily visible - he loses his thread posting rights for a few days.

    Ahhh, so your OP is a joke. Why isn't it in the joke forum?
