You can find out a great deal about many different watches and brands in this one thread. If the brands were split I would suppose that half a dozen would be frequently read and posted in and all the others would not be worth reading regularly because of lack of traffic. As someone not drawn to the highly advertised brands I still enjoy seeing them here and reading about the posters' new watches or grails and also reading knowledgeable criticism of design and craftsmanship.
To be honest I do not mind if the same question is asked more than once as a FAQ would be so long if all the regular topics were in it it would defeat its purpose. Besides which, if a FAQ does not present both sides of a topic such as GO Pano vs. Lange 1 it risks being one sided and definitive.
I have never understood the lurker phenomenon, if you have a question to ask - ask it.
