Right you are. Should those be locked by a half witted moderator too? I mean is it okay to revive one by accident and not on purpose?

nope, only full-witted mods should lock 'em j/k

i really don't see the point of any of them being locked, really... maybe some of the ones that have just completely devolved into a flame fest and serve no purpose should be locked (at least temporarily) but as must as i hate seeing the miata, big ULGY post (i hate that it's misspelled, too) pop up, at least someones not starting a new, useless thread

So it sounds to me like there's 10 who don't think it should be locked. Time for the moderator integrity test.

so after reading this thread for however long its been debated over, I'm siding with Hobo on this one. the thread didn't break any rules...would you much rather have a new thread made in regards to it, only to clutter up bandwidth? I'm not sure why this issue blew up like it did...looks like Satty's one of those who doesn't like to second guess themselves, which I respect and do, as well. but come on, this is ridiculous.

After all, you posted this response and quoted my last post for the purpose of... wait for it... to get it noticed, at least by me. It worked, the system isn't broken.

Should we lock every thread as soon as it's started because somebody wants it noticed? Doesn't make sense to me either.

That's not what I was getting at, but sure.

Actually, contrary to popular belief, we agree on more than we disagree on.

BTW, the thread in question is a STICKY, which means it didn't just "pop up, " It's been at the top of that forum pretty much since it was first posted. Hobo didn't drag that one back to the top...

Yes, as you've noted when responding to people, "did you even see the date on the post you're responding to? He hasn't been here in two years. I don't think he's going to reply, twinkie."

Responding to a two or three year old post that you didn't see the date on is different than responding to one that you DID see the date on, and are trying to prove a point by doing so.

I don't know, but there is a point as I see it and the point is there is nothing wrong with "reviving" threads, accident or otherwise.

Geez, I can't believe that this whole thing would've been taken so seriously. It's just a damn thread...nearly 2 years old at that...But since I'm a man of my word, and you did manage to get more than 10 people to side with Hobo, it's unlocked. Quick, lets watch nobody post in it except those people who just like to be smartasses and prove me wrong.

Intentionally doing it to continue a conversation on purpose, or add content instead of starting a new thread seemes pretty much on the up and up. Responsing to a 3 year old question as if the original poster is here to get the answer can be construed an accident. Running around and deliberately bumping 2-3 year old threads just to prove a point or get back at someone seems childish at best.

Regardless, I was agreeing with VWhobo on this one.
