He's right. The connection between threads and my Scripting News feed is a little temporary glue to connect the old world feed with the flow from the new world. When I did it, I did it quickly, because I was juggling a lot of stuff and didn't want anything to break.
I gave it a little thought and realized I could easily broaden the pipe to allow full thread posts to go into the Scripting News feed.
This post is a test, to see if that works. :-)
