Yes, by a long shot!

The next in the ranking is this thread (http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/showthread.php?t=7945), with 376 replies.
Of the top 10 threads (rated by replies) only two posts are on topic!

On another side the most viewed post is this one (http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/showthread.php?t=21594), but the "scary news post is catching up and soon #1 there also.

Hint; to sort threads (and more) go to the bottom of the page where it says "display options" and select "sorted by". Be sure to select from which period you want to view posts at the bottom the page, to include all the older posts you have to select "from the beginning" in the search options there.

BTW, these statistics go back to 2001 (the oldest post I found was from 03-16-2001).
But the forum must be older than that? Anyone know how/when it started?
