I don't think the forum rules say anything about how topics and threads must be organized. Sometimes we do branch off new threads, to promote clarity of discussion, but I don't see that as a requirement. Keeping all of Collectivist's views on various topics confined to a single thread also has some merit as an organizing principle: really, it keeps the topic focussed on Collectivist himself.
Lately, I've been combining many of Loren's posts into threads according to their topic.
I'm open to discussing whether we need new forum rules about the organization of threads and topics; but recommend that we continue any such discussion somewhere in the "Site Notices & Policies" forum, either under a new thread or under the "Forum rules..." thread? Just a suggestion, not a requirement: if we keep it here, Collectivist is more likely to contribute his opinion.
OK, I should have stated behavior according to generally accepted web forum etiquette, aka good Culture. Your consolidating of Loren's posts along topic lines seems in the same general interest, albeit moving data in the opposite direction. But maybe we should only have one thread for the forum? Imagine the number of page views we'd be getting then.
How about another vote?
