Why are people bringing back threads from 2007 and 2008, can't you come up with original thoughts?

    I hate it when I feel I am going to comment on a new topic and realize someone just trolled into the archives and added their two cents--two years later! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    Hmmm, hasn't this topic been presented before icon_biggrin.gif


    Sadly, the forums are the Green!
    Everything is recycled and called new again.


    Originality is sorely missed...

    Ha! It works both ways..

    - When someone bumps an existing thread, guys complain about zombie threads.
    - When someone creates a new thread on an existing topic, guys complain that it's been discussed before and tells the guy to search next time.

    Just an FYI..

    It's a typical internet forum etiquette/rule to bump an old thread on an existing topic. I know most of you guys are not very internet savvy, so I'm telling you this now in case you ever join other forums out there.

    Yea, I've read threads like this before... people starting threads that complain about old threads is rich old irony at this point.

    But then people start replying to people who posted in the old thread, thinking they will hear back, but these people may not even be active members anymore. The fun in a thread is to share your replies with others.

    LOL...you are funny wrestlervic! Sometimes a thread is just "classic"....like a fine wine...gets better with age. Think of it as an old friend....someone you haven't seen in a long time.....

    and appreciate it!

    OP, why bring this up now when there are old threads that have already covered this issue?

    Exactly right. Why not close threads after a year or two. There are usually too many pages to sort through anyhow by then, and a lot of the posters may be gone.

    Aww maybe some of them really think that they're being O.G. When they come up with their topics. Lol but yeah I agree with you for the most part icon_twisted.gif

    Some new people dont wanna spend time looking at all the older threads and stuff so they just post watever. I don't know wat was going on here in 07 or 08 icon_razz.gif It's always good to hear topics again and sometimes ppl bring new opinions

    an original thought is rare and almost unheard of...

    even this forum is far from original in it's content.

    some topics are like masturbation, you just gotta keep going back to it cuz it never gets old.
