The problem is that the system needs to compute exactly where the page lies given this many replies and this many deleted posts. It's worse for mods, who see all the deleted posts. It takes 10-15 seconds to load a page at this point, compared to near-instant load in other threads.
They actually recommend starting a new thread after 1k posts, and definitely after 10k. We've gone on well past that.
So yeah, I'm not joking or trying to mess with you; just trying to keep the thread / forum running smoothly. Even if you guys don't care that it takes forever to load, it probably drives away new ponies. Plus, it puts load on our servers while it's trying to do all these computations.
Anyway, see you all in the new thread; feel free to ask more questions there.
how you doing

Well, it's time then.
By decree of Trixie; Goddess, Queen, and Part-time Marine-biologist, it's time to pull the plug on this one.
While the undisputed champion of threads when it comes to size, it's... Well, a bit too large now.
Therefore... it's time for some change! Fret not, though - Part Two will be up momentarily!
New thread can be found here.
Your faithful Overlord.
