    Seeing how I don't want to be accused of necroposting, I brought this back from the dead but it's the living dead because it still applies.
    The Brown Cafe has not had many new trolls here lately but it is a good read.

    That is a good description of troll psychology. 2005? No wonder I forgot about that one.
     
  3. That explains a lot. Good perspective.

    May I please ask a serious question? Why is necroposting such a bad thing? Some folks hate a "new" thead that could be searched, but when an old thread is resurrected because of that reason, it's also a bad thing. What is the rule of thumb here? Time span?

    To me, necroposting is bumping a really old post for no reason at all or to answer a question that was already answered. Many of those posters seem to like the sound of their own voice.

    When I post about not searching before asking, it is almost always regarding a topic that is less than 2 pages from the front page. Currently, the topic that noobs cannot search for is back pay and what progression they will be under. Fer chrissakes. It is called google, use it.

    There have been several noobs that bumped an old thread and added useful info or asked a followup. I gave those noobs mad props for searching appropriately.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    This is why I would like to see any threads one year or older which have been inactive for at least 6 months deleted. I would also like to see threads which have been inactive for at least a month moved to the archives where they would fall under the same criteria as outlined above.

    I'm not sure if I agree.
    I do try and put the year in the thread title if the subject reoccurs.
