I just did a search of Civil Aviation forum with no selection criteria and sorted by "Most Popular First". The top 3 are as follows:

https://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1/6/

https://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/336291/6/

and last but not least the infamous 911 thread

Oh man, I remember coming home from work early on 9.11 and following what's been going on on that day through the forums on A.Net (among other places). Unfortunately, I certainly remember that thread very well.

I don't think that is true. There are topics in the civil av forum now with more replies than the first two links.

In recent times, I would suggest in the General Av section with the most posts was "HNL Rareities". Others would have to do with significant crashes.
