(1) This lengthy thread somehow bumped to the top this morning. Perhaps I'm overlooking something - but see nothing highlighted in red (as usual) to indicate a new contribution. ... Nor do I observe at this time any contributions from today, August 30.
(2) This thread now has 40 responses. That's good in many ways. However, at that length it begins to crowd out newer threads if one pulls-up only the SUMMARY page. Has anyone considered a cut-off point of some sort? Issue is not peculiar to this thread. Some of Scott's highly valuable threads on "What are you buying or selling now?" have had similarly high responses in the past. Am guessing some of those have exceeded 50 responses over two-three week periods. (Heck, some probably sell what they earlier reported buying over that long a period:-) Understand the reluctance to close threads. Maybe there's an in-between ground where they could in-effect be "Continued" in a new thread - which would bump to the top, but contain a LINK back to the 40 or more earlier responses? Closing a thread ONLY with consent and blessing of the original poster is another possibility.
