• In Response to: Re: Who coined the term mega thread? *NM* (C. Hook)


The term "Mega Thread" (meaning "a very long thread of posts, often times getting out of hand and straying very far from the original topic"), was used for the first time by yours truly on Friday, July 13, 2001 (Friday the 13th! Whoa.). It was in referrence to one of the great Goldenthal arguments between me and the rest of the board.

It quickly became a widely accepted and much used term in general ScoreBoard posting.

This episode of "Filmtracks ScoreBoard History" has been brought to you by the letters F, U, and by the number 3.

p.s. yes, don't worry, I made sure to search under "mega thread," "megathread" AND "mega-thread."
