If someone writes "In this thread alone, several people have compared Obama to Bush", are you more likely to interpret it as:

A) Several people have made Obama-Bush comparison posts in this thread



B) Several people participating is this thread have made Obama-Bush comparison posts elsewhere


or

C) In this thread, several people have made Obama-Bush comparisons. People (but not necessarily the same people) have also made Obama-Bush comparisons in other threads.

Even if you believe the correct answer has already been posted, please post your opinion so that I can get a good feel for how many prefer the different options.

"In this thread alone" means that "just here, in this conversation," people have made comparisons . . .
