    I can't say I care for the automatic closing of threads.

    I see no reason the threads should be closed.

    This would also be a pretty quiet board if people could only make one post per dive. There are a lot more inexperienced divers out there (or perhaps I should say divers with less experience), say, in the 0-50 dive range, than there are in the 1000+ dive range.

    Of course, it would be less of an issue if we could enforce a "ask a question ONCE" rule, rather than having to answer the same questions over and over.

    I'm not a fan of resurrecting old threads... in MOST (but not all) situations, but I don't think automatically closing them is the really answer. A sanity check warning box would be good, perhaps.

    LOL ... if there was a sanity check on this board, no one would qualify to post either!

    But I do agree some old threads should be left dead ...

    If we just closed this thread.... all of this would be solved.

    And I exaggerated when I said 'every new subscriber'- this is far from the truth. Most don't. There have been a notable few post-whores though.
    For the past ten years I was working jobs were I'd get a few hundreds emails a day (not including spam and junk; messages from people in the company). I guess my tolerance for post-whores is a little higher.

    I actually cannot recall anyone resurrecting an old thread in the past few months. This is not to say this hasn't happened, I just failed to register it. My wife says it is senility .

    I am afraid to look... Oh good, it wasn't me.

    Oh man, I think my wife might be right. I don't think I have ever noticed one posting by this user.

    I'm number 13 in that list. And you're right. I'm trying to up my post count, because I want to be a Grand Master Spammer...

    //oh hell...I just upped my post count with this post
    Im pretty sure scuba videos is from the forum... it just posts when a new video was posted on the scuba diving video site.

    Nope, not trying to be abusive at all. I was just wondering why that steaming pile of feces was posted.
