If possible, please change the Foolish message boards to allow the ability to put an entire thread in the Penalty Box.
Contentious OT posts significantly detract from the legitimate information (tons of it) that both posters and lurkers alike have to absorb and learn from. This has happened on the MI board. It "wastes bandwidth" and significantly increases the amount of time needed to get to pertinent posts. Being able to penalty box an entire thread would quickly allow people frequenting a particular board to ignore pointless digression from the topics at hand.
