The better idea is to send a photographer/reporter to help facilitate Foo's reviews of his Chavet shirts and Maison bonnet glasses. Foo threads definately spike forum activity, at least for me. The threads keep me at the edge of my seat, figuratively if not literally.
I'm one of those people who really like threads like this to fulfill the social aspect of the forum. It's like the forum version of reality TV. I've been a forum member for 10 years and have long stopped needing (but not stopped coveting) new things. I come back because it's a cool place to hangout.
