Splitting Threads
Please can we have a new policy regarding thread splitting?

If a thread is split, could an explanatory OP be added (i.e. a new first post) that covers:

1. A link to the original thread
2. The reason for the split.

Reason for asking:
I saw this... http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/forum/...d-argument
It starts with a reply (with no context) and was at 17 pages when I first noticed it.
So, like, man, WTAF is going on?


Cheers
DLJ

1. There's a green arrow.
2. Douchebaggery.

Next. Tongue

Or maybe not I dunno. I'm not paying attention to this.

Might be. It certainly looks like someone who's been here before. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

1. Sure, smartypants, in that example but only because there was a reply.
2. If that is always the reason, I'm happy to accept it as the default.

That's the reason nearly 99% of the time including the thread you mentioned.

I'll ask KC and aurora. The potential problem is that I don't think there's a way to insert a post into a thread. The only way it may be possible is to edit the first post of the split and add in a message from the Mod who split it. Some people get kinda touchy about that kinda stuff though.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.
