I absolutely love those discussions. I don't always follow every one through to the end, just as I don't follow every discussion through to the end of a bulb species that I either can't grow here or am uninterested in. But I love them popping up every now and then.

I think they are the equivalent of how it used to be in popular music all the way into the 1990s (when nationwide widespread top popular music hits seemed to have diminished to just a handful a year, if that) where there would occasionally arise a humorous song that would become extremely popular across the USA and sometime even beyond. I've seen examples that this occurred since even before radio and recorded music began and sheet music was the way people "heard" new popular music tunes. 

Just my opinion.
