I have never seen so many posts in reponse to old threads that died six months or a year ago--including those that ask for recommendations for 'this weekend'. I don't know if this is a new phenomenon or if I am just more aware because of how the new boards are organised. Despite my interest in the subject, I have refrained from recklessly adding to a year-old request for oysters tonight after a bright researcher chimed in with advice yesterday and bumped the whole thing up to front page of the local board. I can just see the 'Latest Post' sort becoming clogged and useless with helpful observations that restaurants about which posters inquired last year are now closed. Have you ever considered a moratorium on threads of a certain age? Or perhaps I am being needlessly cautious and you wish to foster more of a carnival atmosphere on the new Board?
