I prefer fresh, new posts. If you want to start a NEW thread about something from 3 years ago, knock yourself out, but is it possible to prevent very old threads (i figure older than 3 months) from being reposted in their entirety?
Too many necroposts too often...
If you can log in and submit posts under your own account, why would changing the options of your own account be grounds for reprimand?
it's very difficult to sift through the outdated posts quickly...and yes, I can read the dates, but when glancing quickly, I really don't pay too much attention to the dates.
So instead of taking the time to take preventive measures yourself, which you claim that you are capable of doing, you have asked the site administrators to develop some system or method to prevent this from happening to you all based on your preferences (which appear to not be everyones preferences).
If it's relevant and related, and someone has something new to say on that topic, why does it matter when the thread was started?
Thanks anyway. Post away!

All I ask is necropost if it's relevent, not just for sh!ts and giggles, 'cause that's all it is lately...sh!ts.
This crap in the carrier forums with people going through and pulling all the negative threads to the top is ridiculous though. That gives a false and very negative view of each carrier that could potentially really hurt the reputation of the carriers and of this website.
in the past few days we have tried to cool down the flame war that brought about your original concern, dealing with the prime suspects directly. this is how we prefer to solve these problems.
however we cannot do this alone. it's important to us that all forum members report these issues to us instead of taking matters into their own hands and fanning the flames. when this happens, things get ou...
i know it's hard to believe but you know, we actually go out and do things.
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Please tell me they are cellphone related things that you go out and do!
