The processes and threads are independent sequences of execution, the typical difference is that threads run in a shared memory space, while processes run in separate memory spaces.
 
A process has a self contained execution environment that means it has a complete, private set of basic run time resources purticularly each process has its own memory space. Threads exist within a process and every process has at least one thread.
 
Each process provides the resources needed to execute a program. Each process is started with a single thread, known as the primary thread. A process can have multiple threads in addition to the primary thread.

1.A process is an executing instance of an application where as A thread is a path of execution within a process.
2.Process run in separate address space, but threads of a process share address space

String is the initial *starting* post.

POST is an answer to a THREAD or an answer to a post within a string.

POST is a type of COMMENT - they are totally unrelated:

With the center Forum module, remarks (from the center Comment module) are posts. Flexiforum enables you to utilize Node Comments instead of Comment for gathering posts, allowing them to be hubs instead of remarks. On the off chance that you are using this conduct at that point POST replaces COMMENT. Generally POST does not exist and you are using COMMENTS instead. You can't have both.
