I'm new to posting on this forum but not exactly new as I've been reading here for some time.
Today, I found a question had been asked previously and as I read through the answers, I saw a post by someone (not marked as moderator) who chastised one of the good folks replying to a thread with an answer and then closed the thread. Evidently, the problem was that the question was too old to be providing alternative answers to and should not have been resurected.
I disagree with this and it "irritated" me to the point that I had to join and say something about it.
The reason I disagree is that there are usually many alternative solutions to a problem and what works for one person may not work for another. Also, as technology evolves, the solutions may change. Updating a thread with a more current solution isn't necessarily a bad thing, regardless of how old the original post is.
The post that "irritated" me is found here:
