Most forums deal with spam attacks, editing posts, moving threads, have user moderations threads about nimrods that are acting up, discussions about vendors, discussions about general forum operations and so on...
At the end of the day, something that seems like a huge deal to us is something that keeps the forum running smoothly for the long run.
Recently, when threads have taken this sort of turn they have been shut down by the mods. Before you posted, it was over 8 years old, so a very inactive thread.
