The last overflow thread was some time ago, so here’s a new one.
Overflow threads are set apart for side discussions (especially leeeengthy comments and perennial stoushes), as part of our system for keeping other threads on-topic.
They are meant as constructive spaces to give these tangential engagements room to build without disrupting either the on-topic discussions on active threads or the break-from-the-routine vibe on the weekly open threads: generally the best place for media-cycle fuelled critiques/speculations on topics that don’t have their own dedicated threads.
Please help us keep discussions focussed by making an effort to not cross the streams.
