What topic has generated more comments than any here at SkS. If you have a look at the Greenhouse & 2nd Law of Thermodynamics thread It is heading for 4 figures: http://www.skepticalscience.com/argument.php?p=19&t=947&&a=164

I couldn't help but push it along a bit...

Which brings me to a suggestion I have made previously. In addition to a recent comments list which can quickly fill with chatter on the recent 'hot topic' posts, how hard would it be to add a 'recent threads list'. Ranking threads by whether they have had posts recently. Some interesting conversations (OK, and some flame wars) can go unnoticed by the lurkers because the steady but occasional comments get lost by the attention on the newer posts
