I don't really care how many forums or threads there are. I just look at the recent posts .. If there is nothing going on, I vamoose.<br>If it is a dead thread no one will have commented in it.<br>and vice versa.<br>However I do pay a lot of attention to thread titles. If the tread title contains no useful info on its contents .. well, there is not going to be any content either.<br>In the same fashion, I only read email headers and sort the guff at that level.<br>If they do not address the email to me or if the header is not something that I recognize as a subject of interest to me or if the author/sender is completely unknown, a set of numbers or no name at all... This kind of stuff just gets trashed, never downloaded. <br> <br>So you see it does not matter how many subsections you invite comment in,in fact the more choices the more posts, the more gravel to pick the diamonds out of. <br><br>The readers or at least I, am only going to read those subjects which are to my mind worth bothering waiting for the browser to load. <br>If no ones post gets answered they should not think "oh what a dead forum", or "no one cares"..<br><br>drivel.. <br><br>Instead they should go, nudge their own post with their toe and sniff the air, for that odour of decay.<br><br>
