At the same time, starting a new thread for every variation of a topic theme gets a little tedious and annoying. It's hard to know when to start a thread and when to post something which is related, but not exactly on topic to an existing thread. Hopefully moderators toss out off-topic posts on a regular basis and combine threads as necessary.

I know that wildrose and cactuspete do a good job as moderators. As the number of posts increases good moderation becomes more and more important.

I have no complaints about any off-topic posts recently. People have done a great job of sticking to the topic they're posting under for the most part. Sometimes I think it's hard to decide whether to post under an existing topic or to start a new thread. The moderators do a good job of combining threads when necessary IMHO.
