    I have no problems with it either...I'm thinking some here would never watch an old movie 'twice'...I'm just sayin'...

    There is always something to learn with additions to old threads. The 'View First Unread Thread' button can eliminate anything old you choose not to read through.

    If new thoughts or information is shared in an old thread resurrected then great. I open a thread to read it because it interested me. It's origination date has now bearing on my decision to read it. f

    I was grateful when Defensive Carry began allowing new posts to formerly closed threads and applaud those in charge.

    Good grief.

    Member starts new topic: 'Use the search, it's been discussed 100 times!'
    Member uses search: 'Way to bring up a 2 year old thread!'

    Do what you want, you're gonna tick someone off either way. :)

    I think it's great that these old threads are being read and information gleaned from them. But, if these threads raise new questions, lets start a new thread with the new question and get some new and/or current comments and input without reviewing 100 old comments.
    In this case I think that's good they are doing some research instead of re-hashing something that's already been hashed over. Sometimes old threads should come back. Kind of like the history of our country don't you think? Good to remember the past and learn from it or expand on it.
