I have seen many a thread on this site get derailed. The longer the thread, the less likely that you will read a post on the original subject. I suggest that a tree version of threads be used. This way, when someone goes off subject and many people follow that thread, it will be a good deal easier to find those posts which stick to the subject. For that matter, it will also be easier to follow the posts that stick to the tangent of interest. fwiw & imho

The ruby-forum.com web site is just a front-end for a number of mailing lists, including the one that you just posted to (the ruby-talk mailing list). If you have suggestions about how the ruby-forum.com web site should be managed, please send those suggestions to that site's webmaster.
