Just a thought everyone,
Occasionally a thread surfaces, which results in regular posts over a protracted period, all focusing on a single core issue/idea - without disappearing up it's own backside in esoteric debate. Often they also refer to themes which recur, and are not picked up by 'new' posters.
I realise others may have different ideas as to what constitutes an important thread, and that's what 'favourites' is for. Hmmm,
