Default Started a bit of housecleaning in the Math Forum

Yes, drunk with my new powers, I did a bit of housecleaning in the Math Forum...it's an ugly job (and I'm sure to incur the ire of some whose threads have been moved), but somebody's gotta do it:

Moved sghodeif's "new theorems about primes" thread here.

Moved sghodeif's "Why they don't believe?" thread here.

Moved David John Hill Jr's "On a continuing indefinitely sequence of Mersennes" thread here.

Moved the " Reshetnikov Criterai" [sic] thread (and corrected the typo in the title) here.

Moved tinhnho's "please help me, cal expert" thread here.

Moved clowns789's "Multiplication Tendency" thread here.

Moved the "Amateur's Suggested Prime Sieve" thread here.

Moved devarajkandadai's "Maths Quiz-II" thread here.

Moved devarajkandadai's "Carl Pomerance" thread here.

Moved svempasnake's "Trying goldbach conjencture [sic] with 128" thread here.


Note that I didn't move jasong's "I know I'm a kook..." thread to the CKMM subforum because even though jasong freely admits to being a kook, his thread asked an honest maths-related question in a non-offensive way and did lead to some useful discussion (albeit along with a bit of flameage, but the ratio was not unreasonably tilted toward the latter.)

Similarly, there are several threads which are certainly candidates for the CKMM but where I'm still waffling - typically because although the thread's origin lies in crankery, it did stimulate at least *some* useful discussion. Here are some typical typical examples of threads in this borderline region:

http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=3815

http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=3822

http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=3901

http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=4164

http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=3191

My inclination in such cases is to err on the side of caution and leave things be. (But posters with an abnormally high ratio of their threads in this category, consider this to be fair warning.)

That's enough for one morning - I'll start on page 3 of the Math threads tomorrow and continue to work backwards.
