I just love it when someone posts a comment in a two-year old thread ...

From what I gather, one of the reasons that the site and the moderators allow people to start new threads on frequent and recent topics is that (1) things are always changing and new information is good information and (2) there are new posters on the board who don't always search for threads on frequent/common topics and start there own.

So, we end up with six new threads in two days announcing that SusieCakes is open in Brentwood. O

Ok, I get it ... I'm used to it ... no problemo ...

But, if frequent new threads on common frequent topics are cool, there is no reason to drop in a comment on a thread 464 days old. If we're accepting the premise that things change fast and new threads are valuable, then a short comment in a 16 month old thread is almost definitionally not that valuable -- too much may have changed ... the original poster may not even hold the opinions they originally wrote.

Shoot, it's probably my fault for not checking the time stamp before opening a thread that appears new to me ...

No need to respond, just venting a pet peeve ...

All is well ...
