I don't know what other listservers you
follow, but we had one such thread recently
on Statalist, starting a week ago, and the topic is recurrent. 

In most cases, each thread is a constant (reference 
to the Bill Sribney FAQ and the Frank Harrell book)
plus a variable (e.g. Ron´┐Żn Conroy's spirited 
reply last Tuesday). 

If more people read the archives, as you suggest,
and also the FAQ, then such threads might not occur: 
a mixed blessing given the animosity which stepwise
procedures attract and the cathartic effect of fulminating
against them.
