    If we ever get too far off topic, we'll have no choice but to dust off the old robot from Lost in Space.

    Take it away, buddy!

    Danger Will Robinson, Danger! Thread hijack detected! My hooks are flailing wildly!

    Ah yes, good stuff

    Let's all stay on topic now, people! Don't make me get the Lost in Space robot out of his packing crates and flail his metal hooks at you

    I think the bottom line is that if you appreciate the difference that this forum represents, then you should try to change those "other forums" you frequent by trying to make them more like this one, not the other way 'round.

    I believe the general consensus on these "other" forums is that if everyone is posting a new thread for just about every post, then no one will post in the existing threads or worse - the new threads will be makeshift replies to older threads. I have entered a similar mindset of these "other" threads recently since my friend has opened a new forum for his website. However, I also look to this forum as an example that the new threads, if they so begin to bore the community will vanish into obscurity and become lost as a part of the primordial beginnings of that forum.
