I was just reading a sticky on another board that was telling people not to revuive dead threads, and it made me think. People on most forums complain when people resurrect an old topic that hasn't been posted in in a long time. People in most forums also complain when people post a new topic on the same subject as an old topic. On a similar note, people will often complain "why are you asking that again when it was already answered in [THIS] thread?", yet if the person posts in that old thread needing more clarification, they complain about dead thread revival. Does this mean that if a thread hasn't been responded to in whatever length of time has been designated has long enough to make it a dead thread, then that topic can never be discussed again?
