In some cases resurrecting old threads is done by spammers. Clearly, that's not what's going on here.

I don't think that Haertig is questioning on thread rules. But I do agree with him that 11.5 yr old threads being necro'd is a bit much - and specifically considering that 95% of the members from when the tread was new in 08, are no longer active on the forum.

Also AKSAR mentioned just yesterday about another thread being necro'd from 2008.

Really there is no need for this, Can't the Necro OP just start a a new thread with updated information?

Necro threads is why many forums auto close threads after xx days, weeks or months.

That's how I read Haertig's post as well. I have no problem with folks suggesting that new threads be created rather than resurrecting old ones. All I meant to do is explain why I'm not intervening.

I would not oppose an anti-necropost rule, but I don't make the rules.

well, the necro-post shows that they did search for information on the topic which is a good thing.

I agree. I believe it is better to resurrect an old thread than to ask the same question someone else already asked.

The post that revived the thread after 11-1/2 years was:

or, of course, you could bring a purse.


I found that humorous. A good response, but maybe a decade+ late.
