I don't know... Having to read ALL THE THREADS sounds like an appropriate punishment for a man who is so neglectful of his poor, loving wife. In a far off land, all alone, just these young native men who are half naked all over the place, virile and free.
Hell, got any of that wine left? :P Right, to the request! It's part of netiquette that if you drift a conversation of topic, you're supposed to rename the thread to cover the new direction. It should still nest under the original thread in mail readers. This is why I mostly use the forums.... I also hate it when people drift off topic within a thread! Also, have you guys been following my new hardware releases on the forums recently?
