Feedback Thread merger?

Ah, I've answered my own question. But I have to admit, I'm kind of sore about it. I certainly understand the need to not have duplicate threads, but I really considered that to be my signature thread, if you will, and I'm a bit miffed that it got merged with the thread of a more junior member. Mainly, I believe, because he restarted my thread before I had a chance to after the last crash. So my point is, I'm not happy.
You can yell me at me for that one; when I merged them I went with the oldest thread as one to be merged into.
create a new thread and we'll merge the other way round leaving your name as the thread starter?
