You took it out of context. The point I am getting across is that the same could be said about any thread on RS, ie: http://www.revscene.net/forums/vanco...y-fare-685765/
I have not read about this or watched this on the news. In my eyes, I appreciate the fact that Timpo took the time to post about it; but in your eyes and using your analogy, you feel gutted because you have that piece of news PVR'ed and now Timpo has ruined it for you. The point of a discussion forum is to share information and discuss (understandably, you said there's this thread and I am telling you I had not seen this thread before). When you choose not to watch an event (not a movie) live and don't want to know anything about it, then it may be wise to stay off the Internet.
With that said, my thread was about Rossi ending a 3-year drought, which again is a current event which cannot be spoiled. Any car guys who do not follow MotoGP closely would know who Rossi is and appreciate that thread; but no, my thread is now merged with a thread that gets no traffic.
If that's the direction we should head to (where everything pertaining to a certain subject would be grouped into a single thread), then I would suggest making a sticky showing the links of all the definitive threads.
