Which brings me to one of my favorite topics and a suggestion for the forum mods:

The reviving of old dead threads- and newbies or folks who may notbe aware that a thread is old; and

the possibility of some sort of screen warning coming up when someone posts to a "dead" thread - such as:

You are posting to a thread that has had no activity for 12 months - or something like that. It doesn't prevent folks from posting, just gives them a clue that perhaps a new thread is in order, as it is likely that the original posters are no longer on the forum, or may have even changed their positions on the topic.

Yes, but if someone starts a new thread to ask a slightly different question but on a related matter, he/she gets yelled at for not searching. Damned if you do, damned if you don't...

I never go past the first or second page of threads in any forum.

This has been discussed for quite some time by the mods. Seems the "hacker proof" software hasn't been released that will do this. Maybe some day.
