The thread that will not die

This comment thread, which has been going on since February — I close them when they climb up to around a thousand comments, open a fresh one, and then you guys fill it up again. I threatened to close it off permanently, but participants told me not to…and if I did, I’m sure it would just erupt somewhere else.

So here it is, again. I’m pretty sure I’ll have to open up a “bride of the thread that will not die” and “son of the thread that will not die” and “second cousin’s boyfriend’s brother-in-law’s thread that will not die” someday. I am resigned to it.
