Mods having a simple place to answer questions is one good reason, but stopping the spam of new threads is the reason why megathreads are important to me. I pretty much only browse /v/all new and when some micro-controversy comes along new is slammed with different variations of the same loaded questions.Every other post is just someone's opinion veiled as a question so that they can circle jerk with the other people who share that opinion.

They seem to be much easier to ignore rather than to answer. New posts can be ignored and hidden below the well established posts that just happened to get lucky and be posted right after the thread's creation. I can't see them being used for anything but ignoring ideas and preventing spam and I don't think preventing spam is a strong enough incentive to silence opinions.
