Possibly if long dead threads were viewable but locked for reply, which I think is what fhhuber was intending.

For instance: http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58234

Exactly.

I didn't say delete the old thread... just some LONG TIME without reply and it should be locked.

4 yr old thread and suddenly someone wants to essentially repeat an answer already given.
