When someone says /thread, he means that his post or the referred post sums up the "correct" answer or response to the starting post, thus no more replies are needed. More times than not, idiots says /thread thinking that their worthless opinions can accurately sum up the best response to a thread.

It's derived from the forum codings. For example, when you quote someone, you start with and ends with ['/quote]. When you want to boldface a word, you start with and end with ['/b].

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

I think you could've easily gotten away with a /thread after that post.

True...

But I refrain from using forum lingos.

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

Well, that is a bit wrong, partially. If that was the case the TS should write <thread> while the final poster should type </thread>. While each and every one have to start their post with <font color="*INSERT COLOR CODE*"> and end it with </font>.
They would also have to make a submit button, which would result in that the would have to add another string of code both in front, and in the end of the actual message. Oh, joy that we don't have to type every single PHP, MySQL and HTML command by ourselves... (Yes, I know how to create this shit from scratch)

EDIT:
Well, the TS wouldn't have to type that, and the last is mostly just bull****, but I actually do know how to create this ****.

I always just thought that the < and > were taken out to shorten the /word word.
