Confusion of bringing ancient threads back to life vs starting anew....

A la: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...
Is there some way to discourage people from finding some ancient thread on a restaurant (i.e. 5 years old) and then adding something new and completely up-to-date to it? This has happened recently on the DC board a couple times (I did it myself a couple weeks ago... responding to someone's question about a restaurant and then realizing later that the OP was a couple years old). Maybe don't have a reply button on posts that are a year old? Or 6 months old? I mean what's the point of replying to something that old vs starting a new topic? Is it just me? :)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
