Not all threads are created equally. Some have the poor misfortune of being titled "Religious politics and I'm racist lol #yoloswag", or "I hate transsexual eskimo hookers. What kind of eskimo hookers do you hate?". Unfortunately, these are also the threads that get the most attention, and when threads about politically religious, bigotted, nomadic prostitutes of the transsexual persuasion start to fill up, the individual posts start to get ignored. So, [i]Flood,[/i] how many posts does a thread need to have before you consider it too cluttered or over-populated to post in?
I used to ignore larger threads, but now that the format sucks I know older opinions will be ignored in favor of newer ones so I'm less inclined to not post in larger threads... In some cases, if you want to be heard, you actually have to wait for replies to come in so yours won't get buried too fast.
