Your point is well taken, and for the most part I agree with you. As a matter of fact, I think this particular thread flows pretty well, and I like reading the commentary by a lot of forumer on this thread. The general developments thread, on the other hand, is totally out of control. There are so many junk posts in that thread that, half the time you can't even figure out what the heck people are talking about; that is, unless you follow every post in detail, or put a ton of effort in digging through every mundane post. For the person who just wants to pop in now and again, the general developments thread (and probably the transportation thread) are kind of painful.
