    I am new to SF and I have been enjoying some of the old posts & commenting on them, why start a new one if the old ones are still up? Is it all that serious? I am going to continue to do so, if it bugs you well as they say Tuff Titties! I have other things to be bothered about... Carry on. : )

    Thank you for that question. I enjoy reading the older posts as well. It is a very good question. I'm curious myself.

    some people bring up the fact that it's a old post,but it don't bother me at all,
    I answer post and don't even care if it's old or new,don't even look to see if it is
    if you don't like old post then don't answer them

    Girl, I almost warned you about this but I obviously decided to see how it played out. I wish I could answer this and I recently said posed the question on my wall. One fine fellow member responded and I'm sure he'll chime in on this topic before too long. ;)

    It doesn't bother me when someone posts on old posts per se, it's when they comment back to the original poster who has been gone for 3 years. Or when someone says "what should I get my sister for her bachelorette party" and it was 3 years ago....pretty sure the gift was got...moved on.

    Well said. Sometimes I like old posts but at least acknowledge it as such

    Yes totally right! Some threads are fine the discussion is still relevant and on going, where as other, like commenting on a thread of someone pics from 5 years ago is annoying.

    If you're actually adding to threads with valid content, sure. If all you're doing is posting a one sentence comment to someone who hasn't been around for ages or worse yet, refusing to check dates and actually attempting to converse with the original member who's been gone for years, you're just wasting your time and digging up an old thread for no reason.

    There is thousands of threads within the last year. There's really no need to comment on a thread six years old with every single member in that thread long gone.

    Just start a new thread. It'll get more traction anyway.

    At one point in the past mods would lock old threads and tell you to start a new one. With new management comes new practices. I miss that though.

    I am not at all worried, it is social media. Like I said if it bothers that person so much they have two choices
    1. Don't read it
    2 Write a note to the site owners and ask them why these old posts stay up so long and he can express his irritation to them.
    I am not trying to be mean, I just don't see getting all pissed off over something so minor!!!

    Why do you quote a post with no reply? You have time to delete it if it was in error.

    History repeats itself and time marches on. New comments on old posts might well be relevant to somebody

    ...you have no reason to get defensive like that. Chill out. I was replying to a thread you started asking people a question then asking you my own question in a civil manner. Nobody is attacking you.

    I think she's just trying to help! When you quote a post it's because you want to respond directly to what someone has said.
    After you quote it you can't then type your response and then hit post reply.

    Well it sure felt like it. I am not here to piss anyone off, I am not looking to rekindle old members of SF, I just enjoy reading and replying to the old memories and having existing members reply too! Even if I started a new thread then I am there will be someone out there to complain about that also.
    I have only been around maybe a week and I have started a few new threads... Thank you for your comments, if I came off to harsh I apologize, I just don't see it being all that serious.
