Why dig up old threads?
Maybe I'm just being cranky. If so, please ignore.
Why, why are people digging up old threads and then posting to them as if they are current?
I understand searching for and reading old thread. I do it and its very useful. If I have a question regarding something someone posted in the old thread I contact them directly. If I still have a question I start a new thread.
I just don't see how it is helpful to find a thread from 2009 and post an answer to the OP. I think by now they have made their decision. Or to post something like "me too" or "I agree".
Perhaps since the search feature here is so bad that someone may not realize how old the thread is. I have found myself reading an old thread (that had been bumped to the first page) and being confused until I realized the post date.
Right now there are at least 3 old threads on the first page. One is from 2008.
Is it just me? Life has been very stressful lately and maybe I am overthinking this.
I just think it would be more useful to everyone to read the old threads. Attempt to contact the poster if you still have questions or just start a new thread.
