After many years of faithful service, it’s time to retire the original Always Open thread, as the number of comments (over 7000 now since October 2013) seems to be affecting the loading time. So this thread will just be a continuation of the original thread, but a fresh start.
Just as a reminder, the Always Open thread is a place for readers to post relevant and interesting news, links, thoughts that are relevant to the scope of the site, but may be off-topic for some of the other active threads. Users can treat this page as a general chat box, but E-Cat World’s posting rules will apply.
The original thread will be accessible here: http://e-catworld.com/2013/10/26/always-open-e-cat-world-thread/
