Why do posters go back 3, 5, 7 years or more for an old post?

    Could it be that the more things change at UPS, the more they stay the same?

    We can change our logo, so why not some of the issues?

    I always figured it was because they searched the topic that was on their mind and found a thread from the past that was suitable.

    That's what I do in trying not to have to make a new thread.

    I think Over is having the most fun with the necroposting than anyone actually doing it.

    Then I feel like I'm missing something if I don't go back and read 100s posts. I would rather see the conversation from the point it evolved (idealistically). You could always reference the older thread. Just an idea IMO.

    The issues are evolving.

    Corp is involving all levels to justify bad judgments made by the higher level.
    As to the backtracking of posts,
    three main reasons.
    First, someone is trying to get a grasp on the subject.
    Second, someone trying to catch someone in a lie and try to improve their argument.
    Third, someone is too stupid to have an original thought.

    Fourth, they thought it looked like an amusing way to waste some time. *hint, that one's me* [​IMG]
