If everyone brought up an old thread a day then we would never see the new threads.
Just my point of view on this issue.
Nothing to get upset about
No hostility here bro'! But it does seem people get alot of flack for responding to old threads. And in my opinion it's unnecessary. HP has an archive that is unrivaled imo and not only do new members have a right to use it, but I often encourage it! Many new smokers value the archive as a learning tool and that is a good thing. Have we had problems in the past w/necros? Absolutely! But when a members chooses to respond to a thread in a clearly innocent manner, neither you nor anyother member has the right to chide or otherwise denigrate that individual! Plain and simple!
