First of all, King Tubby, where's you icon? You're merely a scout today.
Somewhere in the deep recesses of this forum I brought up this same idea to have the moderators approve every thread. Just like it says now for some of the ones that are posted here, though for some reason not all. I believe it's the Bugs submissions that give the message that moderator approval is needed. I don't know if anyone ever looks, though, they are always approved without comment as far as I can tell.
Honestly, though, matching threads up manually would be a dauntingly impossible task. There are so many threads out there that, although it might be possible to keep things on point, perhaps, it would be impossible to gather up all the pertinent comments to any conversation with perfect organization. So many contributions here are old and forgotten, even good ones.
I don't know what the answer is myself. Maybe we could just do what Maestro suggested many months back. Start the forums over with a different organization.

Whether we start over exactly as he has suggested, we would need to have a more active moderation to keep the topics all clean and on point, I think.
