Yeah that part of the reason why.. It's hard to spot those threads right away. If they were in their own subforum that would be better!

I would REALLY love this. There are so many of these on the debate boards, and it'd just be better IMO.

It's possible then that no so many will become locked.

hopefully, since you'll know going in it will be pretty heated.
but i hope it also doesnt make women shy away from it more either.

i think its just a topic that is relevant to have a sticky as opposed to debating topics like morals or war- these apply to our lives and are great to discuss and debate. however topics like BF/FF, circumcision, abortion or the religion topics are much closer to our lives and seem to require more education- these topics also have the most research , which makes for better informed debates- the others in basic debate are just about an idea or opinion for the most part. circumcision, bf/ff and abortion have more to discuss, apparently since we have 200 billion answer long threads!

Why would it need it's own subforum? I only think it would be a good idea if it stoped topics from being locked but even that hasn't been bad lately. The benefits of formula went on for 26 pages or something and only got locked when someone got nasty.
If we keep giving all the hot topics there own forum there will be no hot topics left.

Chasity you might want to try posting this on the breastfeeding board or the breastfeeding and supplementing. A lot of people overlook this board.
