Why is monopolization of these threads wrong through and through?

Because some choose to dominate a certain large number of the threads that we ALL listen to. They choose to spam SPAM some of their opinions over a wide broad spectrum of topics that do not represent what would be called a 'community'.

Many tire of this...

If I were to do ...or what many mean to do, would seek to just create topic after topic after topic for contrarian reasons this whole place would be a nightmare of confusion.

None of this is acceptable. I can easily counter that I create 13 nice new topics.

What purpose does this serve over the scope of the entire community?

None.

I find that if I like a topic, I will join in the thread.

For those that I do not join in is because it's not because I dislike the thread author, but that I have no knowledge of the subject being discussed.

For those that feel some crunchers are monopolising the forum, the simple answer is to start some threads of their own.

Should they be interesting & other crunchers have knowledge of the topic discussed, I'm pretty sure that they will join in.

All I can see at the moment is thread disruption.

Monopolize - To dominate by excluding others.

Since no one is being dominated or excluded from any of the threads or topics on this board, I don't think the term monopolization applies.

Anyone and everyone with a high enough RAC can post.
Hopefully the cosmos is not trying to reverse the charges.
