Yes, because one 3 page thread is so less impressive than two 1.5 page threads.

I'm with the group that says "Obvious?" Please show me then, because all I can see is that the mods chose to merge to obviously very similar threads into one.

Or is this another of those "Halp! I'm being repressed!" comments?

I'd forgotten where I'd seen the original idea, but you're right that I was referring to your post. It's a very illuminating way to see the truther mindset - a strange combination of envy and inability.
