Who gets to say something is too old or has been resolved? Nope. If you don't want to stand by something publicly, use the anonymous option when posting.
Oh, hey, I honestly think it's great the way it is. I do, however, must admit that I sometimes sigh when I see certain threads lurch back to life... Hmmm, maybe an "ignore thread" button...
Seriously, it's fine the way it is. Pros and cons to everything. And frankly I think Jun does a great job considering the situations that arise are sometimes lose/lose. So right or wrong he has to make a choice and some group will get their undies in a knot.
So on that note... How many here donate a few coins yearly to Jun for giving us this sandbox to toss stuff at each other?
