Is this thread really worth keeping
That's the wrong question. A thread doesn't need to justify its worth in being kept. We should not remove a node merely because a few people fail to see any significant value in it. Not only is that just putting the onus on the wrong side of the equation for philosophical reasons, it also just leads to bad decision making. When that has happened in the past, there usually appear several people who saw the value and the node got restored.
Somebody has to justify the (at least somewhat compelling) reason for its removal.
Which is why considering a node with the reason of just "reap" is against documented practices for the use of "consideration".
