Two reasons that I can see.
Because the primary focus of that thread was "why" not "how," and the why was all about cultural wars and politics.
Because there are a sufficient number of users here that want a technology board, not another colony of /pol/ where everything is viewed, and analyzed, and batted about, through a lens of unrelated sociological frameworks.
I believe we are on out third generation of Endchan's /tech/ board. Presently our board is comfortably slow and reasonably flexible with topics and commentary. We also appear to have a board staff with insight to the nature of image-boards, and are on top of current trends and events. I am happy with them tugging on the reins a bit to keep things more traditionally geeky. Being geeky is not about hijacking fucking everything with societal discussion, political advocacy, or philosophical argumentation.
