    Somebody started a thread XYZ - is the article correct?

    Also: [somebody] replied to a thread "Thread title"...
    Subj ^^

    P.S. Inspired by A page "Activity Stream"
    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.

    Since you're mentioning the thread's title, it would be better to say "Someone replied to the thread "..." " or "Someone replied to a thread titled "..." ."

    "The" is best used here because you have a specific object that you're referring to. You'd use "a" if there was more ambiguity.

    It's not actually correct :P The bold font of the actual thread fills in for the quotes I suppose.
