They don't always stay on-topic, and often the discussion branches out into new and different tangents. This thread could be about baldness and everyone’s various fears/lack of fears of going bald, or it could turn into a discussion of how cool science is, or it could turn into a discussion of other accidental scientific discoveries, or it could even turn into a discussion of the nature of discussion threads themselves. No two threads are alike, and no two discussions are alike.
And the intervening posts between that post ^^ and this one are exactly why I said that ^^.
I suppose I could have looked to see if anyone (or me) had already posted an article about baldness, but even had I, that thread and this thread are not the same. The conversation is totally different, albeit artificially so.
So to your point, Dream, I see what you're saying, but I just don't agree that we need to recycle old threads.
Of course, if that's the will of the majority then carpe thread, but until that suggestion is handed down I'll probably continue to post new articles, ideas, whatnot in new threads, unless I know there's already a thread specifically for it (like the video thread, hot girl thread, etc.).
