Can someone please explain to me what a +1 thread is? I've heard this term thrown around a lot, and I'm curious as to what it is.

Almost all other forums lock topics that don't lead to discussion.These topics are called +1 threads -- threads whose only purpose is for the +1 post count.

Debate.org does not lock +1 threads because we have no active moderator.

Most forums do not lock these threads, unless it is in a specific forum that is for in-depth discussion.
Also, since no one here cares about post counts [nor do they on most forums], +1 threads are an impossibility.
Whether or not PoeJoe can see it, there is a point to so-called +1 threads besides upping one's post count. The thread starter usually starts such a thread out of interest for a topic, curiosity about other people's viewpoints on an issue, non-serious fun, etc.
Also, PoeJoe is probably the only person on this forum that wants such threads censored, so it's quite understandable that the site would not submit to his wishes, even if the forums were well-moderated.

Somewhat like Facebooking threads on DDO.
