Use "Discussion Threads" Instead of "Normal Threads"

In the mobile interface to FT Fora, the threads are grouped into "Stickies" and "Discussions".

Suggestion: Use a similar descriptor for thread groupings when accessing FT via the web.

Right now, when accessing fora via a web browser, threads are grouped into "Sticky Threads" and "Normal Threads".

I've always wondered whether there were "Non-Normal Threads" or "Abnormal Threads" each time I come across the title "Normal Threads".

To address this and to make the web and mobile interfaces similar, suggest changing "Normal Threads" to "Discussion Threads".

Since stickied threads are often also discussion threads, I prefer to harmonize the thread groupings for both interfaces to come in under category bifurcation with just "sticky" threads and "normal" threads.

I agree that sticky threads are discussion threads that have been promoted to "sticky" but still don't understand what makes other threads "normal". They all are discussion threads.
