In the discussion about the impending changes to the Thumpers forum, I've observed that there are some who'd like to see action taken against the so-called "megathreads". I'm only active in one, "The DR650 thread", which has over 75,000 replies. I'll grant you, if I just discovered the wonderful world of DRness, I might be a little daunted to wade in, and searching for anything specific there is challenging. Unless you ask. I don't know about the other megas, but "Do a search, noob." is a reply you don't see there. Questions asked are answered, good-naturedly. Mostly. But it seems that long-timers are the ones most strenuously objecting to the big threads. Most common complaint I've seen is, "Those damned megathreads just clog up the front page." Really? I don't see how this is a problem. Are people embarrassed that someone visiting Thumpers is gonna see which motorcycles are most actively discussed? I don't get this argument. Active threads are top of page. Maybe I'm missing the point?
