Sauna thread

A favoured tactic of the moderator North_Ranger in expressing his disgust (as a poster, not as a moderator) to a particular thread or topic. It includes a declaration of the thread as a sauna, followed by insinuations of nudity and preference for beer, sausage and a vasta (traditional Finnish sauna tool; a bundle of fresh birch twigs used to beat yourself and others while enjoying a hot sauna).

The tradition stems from the Image forums, where fierce discussions and flame wars on Gasbandit's political threads were commonplace. Based on all the hot air, North_Ranger once called a thread a sauna and started this tradition. It is also the reason why many posters assume the resident Finn always posts pantsless and/or has an aversion for pants in general.
