I hate it when people do that. Why would you not read the rules when you join a forum??? It's common sense. Even the rules are common sense. You don't dig up old threads because it pushes new ones down and is basically the equivilent of going, "Hey, guys! Remember that thing we talked about six months ago and haven't mentioned since? Yeah, let's talk about that!" To me, if you're going to revive a thread over a week old, you'd better have something absolutely amazing to add, and if that's the case it's better to make a new thread.
At least none of them have argued when others told them not to do it, right?
