Which is a problem because...?

An advantage. If the topic goes round several times, the mods closing the topic freezes the thread so that the thread does not gets filled with unnecessary details. Python threads are bit like a plane from Paris bound for London via direct flight but which sometimes detours through Tokyo and Manilla. In fact you might ask yourself HOW in the world are you in São Paulo.
The proposed approached raises some issues such as people opening new threads etc.
The idea behind is that list threads are gem mines for Python programmers. If you've followed the thread as it was unspun, that's great. Else if you are reading the archives, you have to untangle the right thread from a mess.
Another advantage of the proposed idea might be to make programmers more responsible by writing what is necessary and as in depth as possible.
