Moderators have limited time to monitor threads and it is not helped by numerous threads on the same topic. It also makes following any topic by any interested party with finite time discouraging.
As a discussion board, give and take of actual discussion should be a priority, rather than a narcissistic need to spam endless threads on the same topic.
These are often simply a link to another article with a yelp of approval or disapproval and no intention to engage in discussion.
This is a major departure from the relative health of the Rabble forum of earlier years.
Some moderator oversight in this area would be welcome.
