Your logic is spot on. I'm very disappointed in XDA's decision. There really was no need.
I completely see where you are coming from, the OT forum will now have so many device sub threads everywhere, so other OT threads will be buried... Regular OT members will also be affected by this, with all those extra threads.
Can't express my disappointment enough...
I'm sure a few DS people won't come along, the ones who've already left (enigmaamit etc)
