ust to be clear: it has always been general policy that we don't remove threads, but that we make exceptions in exceptional cases. There have been several such over the years, most of them just don't come to public attention since the whole point is to DAMPEN the topic.
... and also have the mods hand out warnings to anybody that wants to rehash the matter?
The instruction was very clear that the question of thread removal can be discussed; the seven-year old idiocy cannot. We allowed three pages of pretty much leniency, until someone decided to use the specific name. That crossed the line.
