I was genuinely curious if the MC section had that type of Q&A thread (as I didn't see one), as there is in SW&D. SO, you can simmer down the righteous indignation.
Here's another off-topic post in a thread about big toes.
Rach, my issue with those threads is that then the useful information on the subject (e.g. on big toes) would be buried four pages deep in the thread in a day, basically the same as if someone had posted it in its own thread. When you search, you're forced to show results as posts, not threads, and additionally, you can't do a search by thread title, which is handy. I guess in the end, forums are threaded for a reason.
If you're suggesting there be a Q&A thread, with restricted posting, that would probably work better.
