This section contains direct links to threads running on some of the various bulletin boards.
Sometimes people ask a question that does not have a simple or agreed upon answer, but the input of several people on the thread can add different points of view and cover the topic in more depth. By linking directly to the thread, the people who post get credit for their ideas and their words do not get twisted around. The disadvantage is that some threads run long and get off track. Another problem can arise is that sometimes people get upset and say things that they shouldn't. Just enjoy the good and ignore the bad.
