whoever is moderating the thread should also delete all irrelevant posts (like the recommendations after they have been added) that way its clutter free...including my post here.
Great idea! Unfortunately, it's not practical.
The moderator's primary responsibility is to keep the discourse civil, legal, and non-commercial. The moderator's secondary responsibility is to remember the moderator's primary responsibility.
Having an integrated and context-sensitive thread would be nice. Ideal, in fact. IMO the only practical way to do this, is to have a devoted Alternatives web site, with all of the support that entails. I've already offered to publish 'this site' on my domain, but have not yet received any offers to perform the many and sundry functions that are required. Frankly, I have the desire, but I don't have the time. I'm confident that many other FM Alt'ers are in a similar position.
The primary value of a thread-based FAQ is that you can always see everything that's ever been posted. Dialog, discussion and commentary rule! In order to effectively use a thread-based FAQ, you need advanced 'search skills'. Of course, the greatest challenge can be to know what to seek, and also to know that what you just found might be modified or refuted by subsequent information.
