Looks much neater combining them all into one.......
Having fewer threads looks neater I agree. But a Forum is not about looking neat, it`s about people reading (and possibly contributing) to a subject. If the subject is too broad and has loads of posts which people are not interested in, they won`t bother reading it. Or, and this is significant, Google might not pick it up (or rank it as highly), if the searched for term is just part of a post as opposed to a thread title.

That`s exactly what I think.
