You guys already know this but I like one board per article. It's about having a consistent, dependable, dedicated resource for any term whose page you're on. Anything else just fuzzies things up.

David,

At first blush, a board for every term is an organized and simple way to do it, but I have concerns I shared with Jeremy privately earlier.

1. Only admins can currently open boards. We would need a tech process to allow editors to create a board and link to it. That opens other security concerns.

2. Redundancy: Are editors going to search for an appropriate board before creating new ones? If every permutation of a term has its own board, it creates the fuzziness you want to avoid.

3. If the intention is to link from the article page to specific conversation about the term, why not link to a thread in a category board? Anyone can start a new thread in an existing board without needing permissions or tech processes, and all of the conversation would be in that thread instead of scattered in multiple threads on a discrete board.

My 2 centavos :)
