It isn't a mod issue, really, but since there are now functionally two Steve Jobs obit threads, would it be possible or desirable for the community to relocate arguments about his moral worth and/or Apple's products to one rather than the other?

There's the original Steve Jobs, RIP
thread, and now a thread on Mona Simpson's eulogy
I know that any famous and influential person is likely to polarise opinions somewhat, but a) Steve Jobs wasn't Colonel Gadaffi and b) it feels like this dual-thread coincidence could be turned into a stroke of good fortune. Would it be possible, or desirable, to suggest that theses like Steve Jobs was not fit to wipe Bill Gates' feet
could move over to the Steve Jobs, RIP
thread, which is already burning merrily?
(To be clear, I don't think the mods should be moving or deleting posts, nor do I think they would
; I was thinking more than maybe people could agree to do the Jobs vs Gates/Google vs Apple fighting in the thread that's already full of it rather than the one about a sister's eulogy to her brother.)
