We don't talk about "This Thing" we have.

This is still by far the biggest thread on SC with 10,328 posts. Over 3,500 more than the second largest thread.

It was (is) the original Random Crap thread. But approved by Shemp.

Ah, so double the random and double the crap. Got it.

That being said, I wonder why you guys open so many different threads on very similar subjects…

The short answer is that this forum was intended to be a place with sort of minimal moderation and maximal freedom of speech.

Most of the original members were members or former members of the former JREF (James Randi Educational Foundation) forum, which was tightly moderated (although not always even-handedly or consistently). You couldn't swear, you couldn't say anything mean about another member, you had to stay on topic, and so on. Here, there are no rules like that; only the bare minimum like nothing blatantly illegal. A side effect of this laissez-faire
approach to moderation is that sometimes different members or even a single member may sometimes start different threads on very similar subjects. In other more heavily moderated forums, a moderator might close some of those threads or merge them, but not here.

Because when people stop listening to you whining about Democrats, Commies, Wibbuhwuls, election fraud and the incoming inevitable destruction of America - you can start another thread and regurgitate everything you've already said.

Srsly. One pines for one of ed's gun threads.

There's that, but I think good old laziness makes up for ~ 80 % of the "reasons". Go hunt for that three weeks old thread? Nah, I'll just dump it here. E. g. there are 7 "Brexit" threads (one being about 1776, that's OK), 64 with Florida in the title, 61 with Russia, &c.

Clearly an ignorant, intolerant xenophobe. Never look a gift horse in the mouth, I say!

Yeah but it only does it to certain people. Unless you are some sort of enemies list Twitter doesn't do that to tweets
