• Thread of The Week, Round 132



    It's time for a new thread of the week, our way of recognizing forum members for promoting valuable discussion here.

    Every weekday yours truly posts a morning briefing, including the most popular forum threads—that is, the posts with the most replies—for the previous 24 hour period. For reference, here are the briefings for the past seven days:

    Your Morning Briefing for Monday, June 27th, 2022
    Your Morning Briefing for Tuesday, June 28th, 2022
    Your Morning Briefing for Wednesday, June 29th, 2022
    Your Morning Briefing for Thursday, June 30th, 2022
    Your Morning Briefing for Friday, July 1st, 2022

    Remember that the Monday briefing includes forum posts from the prior Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so all weekend posts are similarly eligible.

    In each briefing, forum posts are ranked by the number of replies (from highest to lowest). That's subject to change, of course, so I did a quick recount of replies for all forum posts in the briefings above. With 25 replies as of this posting the most popular thread started last week is:

    Activating non Verizon service on TracFone
