Silly database question...

When does it get to a point where you would need to use separate
(identical column) tables.

For instance, google/ragingbull/yahoo message boards are probably all
fed from either a very large table (called message boards???) with
indexes for each board or they are fed from separate but identical
tables (column wise).

Which is the proper method? To have one HUGE table with many indexes,
or many separate tables. Just curious, thanks for any responses. -Nick
