As far as I can tell, the only upside to having a megathread is to stop the spam of new threads

There you go. Even if I'm interested in a subject, unless that's the theme of the subverse, I don't want an entire front page composed of posts about the subject. I want variety. A Megathread just condenses all of the discussion into a single thread, which makes it just a bit more contained and convenient.

It only seems convenient for the mods. Anyone new wanting to join the discussion is immediately at a disadvantage in a megathread. This becomes more apparent the longer a megathread goes on. Who is going to dig through a 3-day-old sticky to find the new posts and respond?
