What's Wrong In Commenting On An Old Thread ?
Who decides how old the thread has to be, so that you can't comment on it ? Is the cut off 6 months , 1 year , 2 years ?? What's the limit on it ?

1) Topic maybe relevant, but the facts in the posts are no longer relevant/upto date.
Rehashing a 4 year old thread in Home & Garden on buying a house ... well, affordability has changed quite a bit. $600K then, might of given a lot of choice and affordable for a family. So talking about what to buy, where to buy, still have money to buy new appliances was spoken about then. Now, in GTA $600K is a starter home, economy in Alberta is in dumps ...
2) People whom have commented in posts, might have changed circumstances, so their thoughts might have changed. So, where as someone in Automotive section was commenting on how people should be buy a European coupe might now be driving a Honda because he has a family.
3) You are asking others in RDF to browse through an old topic to understand all the things said in it 4 years ago - that is not nice at all.
So it is best to start a new topic after a thread discussion has ended.
Sort of like your parents dragging up conversations with you when you were a teenager or in high school, now you have graduated from university + have FT job. Lots has happened since then - you have changed.

You know, we're supposed to give new RFD members the benefit of the doubt, but it's pretty rare for a "newbie" to be so belligerent towards Mods that just explained the forum rules. The OP has only been a member for four days, yet posts like he/she's had a previous RFD history... So which perma-banned user are you?tangerinebarbiegirl wrote: ↑Apr 14th, 2016 12:09 pmWhy was this thread closed?
it doesn't break any rules .

Nahhh.. OP sounds young, hence the username and immature thought process. I'm guessing 20 and under... maybe a tweener. A perm banned user wud normally be waaay smarter than that and hide under the radar for several months more before gaining confidence and posting threads like this. lol.akira1971 wrote: ↑Apr 14th, 2016 8:21 pmand

Current existing long azz threads occur becuz peeps are always commenting in them and posting UPDATED info.. ie. Weather thread in OFF-topics or Canada Goose authentication thread in Apparel forum.. as opposed to quoting a post from 5 yrs ago and the thread hasnt been touched in 2 yrs. Now if you were quoting an old post and providing updated new info than that would be different. But obviously mods didnt believe you added any value to the thread, lol.tangerinebarbiegirl wrote: ↑Apr 14th, 2016 7:20 pmWell there are 5 year old threads, which are still active just bcoz people are commenting on them. How is that different than a 5 year old thread ( whose topic is still relevant as of today ) but died just bcoz no one commented on it, but has been bumped now as someone decided to comment on it ? Who cares whether its 5 years old or 5 day old, as long as there is NOTHING wrong with the thread. There is NO official rule from RFD regarding this, so the Mods need to chill, when someone Necros a thread
