I think these threads DID exist, and I am going to search for them right now. They were called differently... IIRC...
If you find those threads, please tag them "did you try". That way, we should be able to retrieve them via the tag cloud. Unfortunately, the basic search function doesn't even accept words like did, you and try.
/edit: Found 'em all (but it seems like the forum has to catch up with the new tags first). It was nice digging so deep into last year's discussion. Also, it reminded me to ban everyone during Season 4 who would dare to make an "appreciation thread".
In the meantime...
Necroing these threads is fine by me.
I might close this one, but at the moment, I'd want it to be seen, so I'll leave it for a while.
