Actually...we have no control over how long a thread becomes. We could lock the thread, but that would not be the right thing to do as somebody else might want to say something. We could delete the thread, but where would our freedom of speech be? Personally...I think this thread would have been a lot shorter if the folks at Streetbeast would have used the chance to do some good PR
here...but they chose not to do that in my opinion. It was a terrific opportunity but they blew it.
