Why not ~ at least ~ have them merged into the original Thread, for example?


That's usually what happens Aussie.

Doesn't help when Imcrook starts 50 threads on the same topic going back 12 months.


In the time I have been here, Mr Hicks, I cannot recall any merging of Threads in Politicians Suck.  How many gay marriage Threads can you see right now, for example?

Poorly judged thread titles are a pet hate of mine. By all means be creative, but make them relevant so people have some idea what the topic is. This is especially important for popular news articles, as they often get posted multiple times, often from different news outlets with different titles to the articles, but people should notice they are already there if the thread title is thoughtful.


Yeas, that is what Members have already said.  So, what about a proposal or edict from you which has some teeth in it?  Multiple Threads on the same topic is at epidemic levels and ought be stopped.  Why not ~ at least ~ have them merged into the original Thread, for example?


I used to do that. Now I can't be bothered. It's a bit too OCD for me. In Politicians threads get bumped down very quickly anyway. 90% of what is there is rubbish in my opinion. I am not going to spend my time sorting rubbish into neat piles of rubbish.

People who can't distinguish between etymology and entomology bug me in ways I cannot put into words.

You have the keyboard, your choice or do you like trying to force others hands?

edit: No that is not an invitation to go on the offensive, you know who you are.

Force?  I can't force anyone.  Is what FD said rubbish?

And that is why you should not engage someone that...

I'll lock the thread 'til 11pm.

Unlocked.

You know what I mean by forcing a hand, playing the rules, this happened, why not this. This is not a court of law, it's a forum.
