  6. Re: An observation about many of the technical forums and thread visibility.

    Exactly.

    I think that amalgamating several forums into one will simply dilute search results and be counter-productive.

    No, that is not what I meant. When someone loads up a forum site and sees 3 threads in the listing, they are going to go elsewhere immediately. Maybe not everyone but many people, because people...
