Relax with calling people names if they don't agree with you. That's kind of a habit of yours. If you can make a good argument, do so, but the fact that people have issues with your stance just shows that your argument has flaws.
Going through a thread with several hundred pages is not a good way to keep up with the events as they unfold. Every new thing gets buried in the thread to the point that you don't know whether it has come up or not. Insofar as thread starters are capable of summarizing the intent of their thread coherently, rather than with vague words that don't tell anyone anything relevant, having multiple threads works pretty well.
The poor threads will die on their own pretty easily. Threads that maintain the plane was stolen by a tractor beam from a UFO will slip below the fold. Threads that have a reasonable theory will be maintained by the ATS eco system. It's evolution in action. Just let it work. Unless you are some sort of OCD "completionist"* you really don't have to follow all the threads. Surely you are intelligent enough to readily discern and skip those that bring nothing new to the discussion.
And that's what this is--a discussion. It's a big room with lots of people having lots of discussions, and as it happens, this popular topic is being actively discussed by more than one group, just like at a party after a basketball game there is probably more than one discussion about those silly brackets. You wouldn't expect to participate in every discussion in a situation like that, and it's the same here, though if you are sufficiently anal you probably could.
It's a lot easier to let it flow than get your panties in a twist because some other people may be having a discussion without inviting you.

by all means,,,lets exercise censorship and control over the content of ATS!!!!!
Funny how many little dictators are running around.
it's not censorship to keep topics in forum categories...LOL
Unless it's OK with you to make searching for topics even more scrambled than it is now?
