What is the point of old threads if they get unbumped any time you comment in one? Seriously, I ran across a post from 2015 in a thread commenting on Pruitt eventually becoming a HC. I thought it oddly prophetic and said so. Then the post gets deleted? How is that offensive? Not trying to make unnecessary waves, but what am I missing?
The point of old threads is they were once a discussion.

I’m assuming “offensive” is your term. Just not a big fan of bumping old threads. It confuses people, for one.

And the discussion can't be renewed? I'll admit, it was a change in the topic, but it was a legitimate comment on a past post. Guy(or gal) made a call on Pruitt in 2015.

I use "offensive" because I thought that was the main cause for deleting posts. Someone finds it offensive.

As for confusion, half the threads on VN confuse me, but I don't think they should be erased. Different strokes for different folks.

I get you and the mods have a tough job, but I honestly saw it as harmless conversation, so I guess I'm just not sure what the malfunction was.

The malfunction, as I explained, is bumping old threads. Start a new thread if there’s a topic you want to discuss. Problem solved.

No offense @Weezer, but I asked @Freak to stuck all the old stuff in their own sub forum months ago because several had been regurgitated, which I find annoying, and got shot down too lol.
It is annoying. Lol. We don’t need a sub forum if we get folks to stop bumping them. Ideally, I’d just close all threads over a certain age. That’s probably the easiest solution, if it comes to that.

I think you miss the point.

And I looked at your bumped thread. Looks like a discussion about you liking old posts. Quite relevant.
Actually, the bumped thread wasn't about that. Look again and you'll see it's exactly what I stated above, a comment on how another poster talked about Pruitt eventually becoming a HC. After that, me and GV got off topic, but the original bump is what I said.

The liking old posts things is how I found it, which is actually irrelevant and harmless. But if you feel it needs to be kiboshed, that's your call.
