This question is about message boards in general, not just ATMB.
I once was corrected on this board when I called a thread a forum. The person claimed that the entire board was a forum.
Anyway, what is the breakdown? It seems to me, according to m-w;
that each thread would be a forum since each share a common topic involving audience discussion. “General Questions” is not a topic, the individual threads are. Right?
Please, what’s the straight dope?
