    I read old threads all the time. I try to be careful not to resurrect them though!! too many people don't appreciate it when you do.

    I do when I am looking for something. There is a lot of good info here. (The gun stuff......I don't pay much attention to the politics, religion, and controversy threads unless a particular thing catches my eye.) I actually read through some of them. I do a lot more reading than posting I guess.

    As far as resurrecting an old thread, I don't because I know I will get a lot of grief about it.

    I find that odd, too. I read old threads to gather information. And...if you find an old thread that leaves a question you have unanswered...one of the first posters will always say "We had a thread on that. Here's a link. Quit starting threads that we've already covered."
    Of course, if you resurrect the thread...then you get the zombie posters coming out of the woodwork with pitchforks and blazing torches.
    I think it's a no win scenario.

    Them old threads have lots of knowledge, experience, wisdom and some notable forum members input that are no longer here.

    They are a treasure drove of intel for n00bs and experienced alike. :cool:

    Instead of resurrecting one, just start a new one, with your new question or opinion and some day yours will be there as well. ;)

    HAHA! at "old treads"; i was thinking about tires.

    I am guilty of posting up with "i wonder if the OP ever fixed that problem, since this thread started in 2008?" and such when somebody zombifies a thread. It just seems silly to respond to the OP's question when the question was asked two years ago. If somebody wants to add to the old thread with their situation such as: "i read this thread and am having almost the same problem with my GP-100's sights; any new suggestions?", that makes perfect sense. However, when the OP was asking if anyone knew of a good sale on spam, it seems more dated and less logical to respond.

    I posted an update on a man-eating bear thread just the other day; the rangers finally got around to exterminating the killer bear after the DNA came in.


    Or you could start a new thread with a link to some of the older related threads that you read as research.

    Maybe I missed something somewhere. What the heck is the deal with bears man? Personally I think they're beautiful, but I aint gonna stick around one and see what happens.

    In short, i bleve they belong in zoos or other enclosures, ONLY. Just my opinion. It seems pretty dumb to have an FDA to protect us from bad food, Police to protect us from criminal attack, REQUIRED seatbelts to protect us from poor driving/accidents, sunblock to protect us from skin cancer, and then to hop in "the bear exhibit" at Yellowstone zoo for a close up with an unrestrained bear.

    Maybe some good person at OFF could develop a truly effective spray for bears AND mosquitos? Maybe make people taste like brussel sprouts; surely even a bear doesn't like that taste. :D

    Well that's how I feel about spiders, but I'm kind of surprised to find someone who feels that way about bears. Okay, your entitled to your opinion, but the only ill will I would wish towards a bear is the one my future coat is going to come from.
