Etymology[edit]

perma- +‎ thread

Noun[edit]

permathread (plural permathreads)

  1. (Internet, slang) A permanent or perennial thread of discussion.
    • 2003, "jbritt", von Rossum on Strong vs. Weak Typing (discussion on Internet newsgroup comp.lang.ruby)
      Since this is something of a permathread on this list I though [sic] this would be of interest:
    • 2003, "David Megginson", Studying up on VOR's (discussion on Internet newsgroup rec.aviation.student)
      I suspect that this is a permathread.
