It seems contradictory to talk about a thread detracting from the discussion that could be had when so many other threads that have no discussion whatsoever are allowed to exist. As you said there is light anime discussion in this thread, which is far more than you can say about recurring sad panda threads, the sakurafish thread, idol threads, muv luv threads, and many other re-occurring threads. This does not even take into account the various threads that are just made on a whim that clearly violate the rules. From the way you seem ed to word things you are doing this based off of your own interpretation of the rules yet threads in clear violation of the rules are left alone. And I fail to see how often that you feel the thread should occur should have any say in whether or not a thread can exist or not. If it is creating too many reports, if the reports are false then ban those people for false reports. Isn't that the rules? It seems as if you are being lazy and just not doing your own job.
