KODAH! -Shoves Kodah into portal.- OUT! Your input is not needed if it is going to be rude remarks. For you, Fafnir, I can only tell you my reasons:
1. Some old threads are just no longer active, which means it has been closed or nobody really bothers to reply. So that thread has kind of expired.
2. For really old threads, it is the same thing, but I also think that some people have a hard time dealing with these threads because SAMBers that used to be their friends have now left.
3. Some people are grouchy about these things and I don't no why.
My advice is that for REALLY old threads (like years ago), is don't bother with them. If you have a thread you want to keep active, simply bump it so people are still reminded to see it. If it hadn't got any replies in a while, just leave it be. I think when some people see a no longer active thread popping up over, over, and over they get kind of annoyed. I hope this helps.
