That's a different story. When he creates a new thread, he deletes the old one for the purpose of keeping the conversation about the project/product current. There are three stages... the development, the official announcement, and finally the release... all summed up with "X is coming," "X available for pre-order," and finally "Your Thoughts: X." That's how you do it the right way. Though I HATE when it happens because it always happens just when I'm on the other thread and it gets closed just as I finish typing. I'm more or less talking about someone asking for info on a skit, then having another thread on the same subject when no one answers, and then a third one to make sure everyone knows that he's talking about that specific subject.
