Trader Joe's threads

I know this is going to be an unpopular post, but let me start by saying that i enjoy TJ's just as much as most. My issue is that it seems that the chains board in particular is over-run with TJ's topics, 14 on the top pag alone!

Trader Joe's Yea/Nay Thread - 1st quarter 2012

There seems to me to be quite a bit of overlap here - when do topics become more "clutter" than helpful content?

  1. What do you suggest doing about? Should the moderators local all the 'old' ones? Block new threads?

    On one of those, a revival of a 2006 threads ('warning') I pointed out that there is an ongoing Yea/Nay thread.

    The multiplicity points to a substantial overlap between TJ's patrons and CH posters. It is, in a sense, the one chain that many of us unashamedly patronize.

    1. That top page covers more than 2 weeks (back to the 27th), with no more than 4 threads per day. Contrast that with Home Cooking where the top page barely contains the last 24hrs of threads.
