OH jeez. Moped Boy would be a prime example of one of weird things I don't care to see again.

I have never understood how the main page builds its list of popular discussions. It seemingly randomly picks old threads and hi-lights them versus showing active topics.

Good point. I have my preferences set to bypass that and just go straight to the forums. The "main page" indeed is weird and will very often pick a thread not only many years old but one that no one has posted to in years and label it "popular". You can't really blame people for getting sucked into one of those and not noticing the actual dates on them until too late. I like to pretend I know what I'm doing but more than Once I've been happily reading along a thread and not realizing how old it is until I catch that a reply is from a person I know hasn't been part of the forum in years.
