I don't agree with creating a dedicated forum, because this isn't the first "hot topic" (positive or negative) to hit the board and it won't be the last. But, I have merged four threads in Reds Live that were little more than links to online articles. Since there wasn't much discussion in them, it made for a fairly clean merge, and will allow people who want to read these articles to find them in one place.
As best I can tell by quickly browsing them, the other Hamilton threads are each pertaining to a different aspect of his story and/or have generated considerable discussion. Merging them would cause more confusion than anything, at this point.
