Longest thread on Sevenforums?

Excluding the Game Threads, other stuff in the Chillout Room, and stickys,
what is the length of the longest thread on Sevenforums?

I keep seeing this one:
More Than 3 Out of 4 Enthusiasts Reject Windows 8
And it is freakin' epic. Has there been a longer one?

There probably aren't many over 200 pages, they usually get continued after that.

Here's a #20 continuation,

Certainly not the longest count by today's measure, but my thread way back (up to that point) when before it got closed was truly Epic. Probably still holds a record here for fastest growth.

This one is longer and it fits you exclusion list:
What don't you like about Windows 7?
People like to complain.

FREE Great Programs for Windows 7
And people like free stuff.


These are also longer and they fit your exclusion list - but should probably be ignored:
Welcome to Seven Forums
Welcome to Seven Forums [4]

There are probably more that should be ignored.
Show us your SSD performance
Show Us Your WEI
Show Us Your WEI (2)
ReBoot Time
What's your memory assessment speed?
Show Us Your WEI [3]

There are about a dozen of these that are also longer - ignore them too:
Custom Made Sig and Avatar [2]

And lots of these are longer:

Longest thread that the advanced search found:
Show Us Your WEI
Closed at 2990 replies.

If one were to a add all of those WEI threads up, it would most likely hold the record. People like to brag :-)

But those "show us" threads are not quite the same "topic type" like the one that you started this thread with.

Good stuff. Love your analysis Usernameissues. Spot on.

And "flogged to death" is exactly the reason for my impromptu question. I was wondering: "how long can they bitch about this?" 2990 posts I guess!

Now I wonder what the longest actual help thread was. If I have time this weekend I'll do that search and see if I can find one in the list.
