When I hear the phrase “green is good,” I automatically think of Gordon Gekko’s quote from the movie Wallstreet, “Greed is Good.” Although I’m not referring to cold hard cash, I am referring to something just as valuable on a community site. It’s literally the gold standard for a technical community.
What is it, you ask? It represents a “solved” forum thread.
