Someday this thread will fall into obscurity... and I will bump it up.
I like continuing discussions on old threads with updates. Sometimes current threads dont interest me.
I like re-reading old threads again if they're funny. Like the "Teresa Giudice Ugly Children" laugh fest. I'll bet half the people here have bumped up that thread at one point or another.
I actually don't mind them and open them often.I also like when they have an update from the OP or someone new interjects a new thought on the original subject.
Not the response you were expecting ??
GREASE FIRE is not enough punishment for trolls who bump old threads.
I do wish that people who respond on old threads would take note of the date stamp.
It shows up right there in the corner of every post, but some seem oblivious to it and try to argue a point that someone made 2 years ago. Or they complain about a link from 2009 that is no longer active.
Good point r10. I have noticed that.
maybe the person who bumps the thread should make some kind of announcement about it being a really ancient thread, and to disregard posts from, say, January 2010
Piss Mom keeps bumping her old threads and blog. They died for a reason, toots.
I can't stand people bumping dead threads. There's been countless times I'll see one and think something just happened, only to find out that it's from a year ago.
...and just to show goodwill I am bumping this one.
I like being able to go back and read old threads, especially if it's movie/book discussions, to get some ideas about what to read or watch. But I hate seeing "Donna Summer: DEAD!" every few days.
It seems too many are troll threads bumped by the trolls themselves. We can easily tell which these are.
I mind them far less than assinine polls like this one.
Especially the trolls doing the 4am bumps.
I have heard so much bitching about creating threads that are already in existence and then there is more bitching about bumping threads. Let people do what they want. Don't read it if it seems like something familiar to you or you have no interest. Geez.
I like the old threads. I wish each was dated with the year and day of the first post or creation. A discussion may have been started last year because of an event. Would tell us if it is a an old thread or perhaps new or updated thread linked to a current event
I like them when it's the OP coming back with an update, but it's silly to see people giving advice to someone about something that happened two years ago.
OP, Aren't you being just a little over controlling? There are always newbies who haven't read the old threads. Some provide interesting new info too.
