View Full Version : bringing up old posts

hey bevnet man...can you shove posts more than a year old that are in the general section into another section? the actions of a few (rafe chilbot, assclown and onenudedude) while amusing and interesting, is kind of annoying when i want to find the uptodate and current posts...

while it is interesting to see what we were talking about three years ago, most of the time there inane comments in these posts result in nothing more than clogging up the board...i like what assclown and his other identities bring too the board but these inane comments have to go

can we put these posts in another forum for people to goof around with?

I concur. Most of the time they don't really answer the question the original poster was asking. Most of those original posters don't hang around the forum anymore, so there's no sense in rehashing 3 year old questions and answering with something like 'I don't know'. It seems pointless. Maybe posts, after a year, could be frozen. If someone really wants the question re-asked, they can just type it and submit it again.

We'll see what we can do...

I too will banish this practice unless I find something relevant.

And for the record, Concord Hubbins was the first...

Eeeeeeek! Then you guys better avoid Jones Soda like the plague!!!

Hey they made a Jones Soda section called "Complaints Gripes Rants" just because of all of the Jones controversy; maybe a section for those commentaries could also be made but then again, who would frequent it???

I'm this close to quitting this board. Please do something about it.

Count me in. It appears that anyone with a valid IPS addy can sign up and start posting. I'm at the point of leaving this board. I do not need the stress of some immature person spoiling our great board.

I got the feeling there is one spamner working a few characters. Oh well board trolls usually peter out in time.

Agreed. One "Surge" thread would more than cover this "red hot topic" and keep us abreast of all the current breaking Surge news.

the irony is sickening

Hence my "oh brother" comment before...

And I agree that it's probably all coming from one person, or at least a group of people who know each other.

Don't think of these people as trolls. Think of them as skilled information archaeologists.

Hey Bearded Clam. You racked up your 60 posts in one day.

Almost all of those posts were on topics from 2002 or earlier.

Shut up.

Thank goodness you're leaving.

Bringing up old posts for good reasons does not bother me. But bringing up hundreds of them to anoy everyone does.
