It's A Thread, Dammit

I don't know exactly when it happened, but at some point "thread" turned into "string" when referring to a discussion via e-mail, blog, message board, etc. It's "thread," people. The back and forth banter that is sum of the component threads is called a "threaded discussion," not a "stringed discussion." So quit telling me to reference the "attached string." It's a thread.
