I just want to say that there's no law that says we can only have one or even two threads. It's just a preference. For all it matters, you could choose to have an entire sub-forum dedicated to JP sales-related topic and have different threads for each new piece of news. Given the pace of discussion, it may not be so futile, and I know some people who prefer things that way too (though that extreme isn't my personal preference either). Personally, I see the topics as distinct, and I think there's enough discussion that warrant separation, and "results-only" isn't really what I'm seeking either. Having everything in one long discussion thread makes it easier in some ways, but also makes this thread really long and unwieldy (granted that I prefer flat thread navigation, vs. vBulletin's quasi-threaded mode).
Anyway... I want to say thanks to something for the consideration and I hope that this can give both topics more room to grow and find their own styles/themes/approaches. And if there are more sub-topics that warrant their own threads, I would probably support those splits too for whatever it's worth. There's certainly enough interest in this general topic, in my view.
And, also, sorry for the off-topic tangent. (In the interest of fairness to the topic-splitting/topic-focus intent, it may be better even to split this tangent to its own thread so it doesn't get in the way of the sales discussion. I suppose I could have started it there, but wasn't sure if that was better or worse.)
