    .. @DisneyGeek?



    That does NOT mesh well with my sense of justice.
    Hmm...I think a Te-dom would work better for something like this. :P

    I thought it was kind of up to public opinion whether your necro is good or not. If other people hop in on the conversation, well done. If it dies for a second time, well, that's just depressing.

    People have a problem with certain posters whatever they do, if you post fresh threads you're posting too much, as was flagged with me ages ago, if you ressurect old threads its a problem too, I can understand maybe on some smaller fan sites hoasted from pocket money' but I'd even suggest that threads have a 'lifespan' in that situation then be deleted but a lot of the time I just think its stirring.

    With regard to what is resurrected some of the apparently banal or personal threads from years back are very good, much less banal really than other apparently not titled threads.

    Some are accidental. Some are because people just like the topic.

    Others are absolutely and completely on purpose just for the hell of it. If a topic is buried and forgotten such that one would have to do a search for it, and the thread had also pretty much played itself out and concluded, there's a good chance that somebody sought this thread out for the sole purpose of necromancy for sake of necromancy.

    Also: I'm pretty sure that most folks would hate getting called out on some random thought they had five years ago. It's almost as if you're replying to a different person.

    I do think sometimes new members come in and instead of using the New Posts feature, just open up subforums of interest to them and start reading chronologically, so they might not realize how old the threads are...

    Longer-term members are more likely to do it on purpose, I suppose.

    Anyway, I'm currently watching The Walking Dead, so that's a nice bit of life life synergy for me here.

    It'd depend, why not simply say that you've changed your mind? It'd be surprising if someone was the same person after that amount of time, why would anyone be calling anyone out? You guys make it sound like an Irish Debate or something.

    Uh, think about it a moment:

    You get a post that explains why something you wrote years ago is wrong in their view.

    It's not a matter of even necessarily changing your mind, maybe you don't even have all your old logic there anymore (because you've changed) to track your thinking, to even know if you were right or wrong at the time. And now you either have to spend time trying to figure that out, so that you can properly evaluate your old post + the comments of the new post, or you just ignore it / say you're not going to spend the energy to do that now, because it just doesn't matter to you.

    This happens when a poster takes healthy pride in their thoughts and thinking consistently, so they don't want to make a mistake, while meanwhile the new post is kind of a throwaway from the new poster where they didn't really much think through or care much about the topic or question and are just tossing stuff on the forum.

    And yeah, actually, some posts on forums ARE calling people out. Look at the stuff that gets posted on this forum regularly. Some posters even explicitly say that they are calling people out, in order to correct their thinking. People are called out here regularly, even in current discussions.

    Maybe you operate differently or don't care as much about consistency from post to post. But others do.

    Well if someone is attempting to troll you obviously, there's been more than one attempt to do that on this forum, which I noticed didnt sitr up anyone BTW.

    I know what I mean and mean what I say, if my words get twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, its just one of those things. Surely we're not dealing with a site here on which members and posters are such experiencing such fragility that everyone else should moderate their behaviour accordingly? Even if that were possible wouldnt that be unhealthy? Its not going to happen in life in general.
