No, it wouldn't. Why would there be any more threads than usual? If people were actively interested in every match in the draw, why don't we get like 30 WWW threads per round already? And even if we did, only a handful would even be active, since only a select few matches are actually televised.

I've moderated on forums before, so it's not like I have no experience with this. Other forums deal with live match discussion very easily. Look at TW, for example. The most active live discussion threads you'll find at any one time is around 4. Why? Well, people are only interested in certain matches. Only certain matches are televised. There are only so many matches going on at one time. We're not talking 30-60 matches being played at once, even if it was remotely possible that there would be that many threads in GM.
