I recon it would be handy to be able to have a "subthread" feature so that if someone say's something interesting like, for example - the generals recent comment on the number of moves required to solve a rubix cube in a thread about random facts - and someone wants to diverge from the topic but still link back to the inspiration it would be nice to have a "tangent" button. I don't think that it should necessarily do anything other that create a new thread and provide a link from the inspiring post (and probably back to the inspiring post from the thread page?). No idea if this is a good idea, could be quite neat with a bit more thought though

Could be useful

I usually just start another thread and put cross links in both threads.
