I have recently seen several different candidates mentioned as the most popular. I suggested that the A thread had the most replies and the If LotR Had Been Written By Someone Else!? had the most views.
In the interest in fighting ignorance, albeit Mundane & Pointless Stuff here are the forum by forum results.
Game Threads generate the most replies but not the most views by a long shot.
It turns out the most posted to is actually the a thread. It had 5,337 posts
