The thread concerned advice for a writer wishing to try Emacs and Org-mode. What I found interesting is that the writer was currently using Scrivener. I've written before about my belief that Emacs can do everything Scrivener can. The thread doesn't address that but it is interesting that some of the commenters moved from Scrivener to Emacs/Org1.
Writers, and everyone else for that matter, should use whatever tools they're comfortable and productive with but the thread is another piece of evidence that there's no reason that tool can't be Emacs.
