I think it would be beneficial to all -- assuming Bob doesn't want this forum to die and sees some credit to him and the site from the best discussions -- for there to be a way to continue discussions on the thread that go beyond the diavlog and into the topic or just go into the topic in great depth. Something like when it gets impossible to reply any more that it's acceptable to take it to this forum and a run-off thread. IMO, Bob et al. are just concerned that there are comments upfront. As long as how we use this forum isn't a competitor that interferes with that, I doubt they have an interest in 100 post long threads or discussions which continue well-past the posting of new diavlogs
Agreed. It would be nice to simply switch here after the ninth level has been reached, but failing that, maybe after the DV falls off the main page (right-hand column) it could become fair game.
