there are a lot of great threads and discussions in these forums. there is no rule as to which thread one can post. again nobody owns any threads or posts. Only City Data does.
This is pathetic, your attempt to explain yourself isn't working. Everyone sees through you, it's so obvious. Resurrect all you want, but nobody gives a damn. You should know by now when a thread from 2007 is brought back, it's called "resurrecting a thread". It's quite obvious that you have a vendetta. Either that or you're just trying to get my attention.

You don't have it. Later.

Pedophilia and sexually preying on small children - IMO, this is AN ABSOLUTELY unforgivable sin/crime. Some cowards also indulge excruciating physical abuse to very small kids - so that too. And kidnapping children as well.

All these sins/crimes should result in immediate death penalty when proven guilty based on undeniable evidence in a fair trial. No exception!

Actually I have no idea what is wrong with you but you need to get a freaking life, along with your two cohorts. It is just not healthy to stalk and harass people, that causes some people to commit suicide. It's called bullying, and I am calling you out on it.

I hope to be here to respond to your waiting-with-bated-breath response.

I think I'll go kill myself now. Mm that would make her so happy. So I won't.

Sixteen years between posts certainly qualifies as a dormant post.

Obviously, you resurrected a long dormant thread. Why you did that, or what effort you expended, we don't know, but the fact that you did so is obvious to anybody that looks.


We usually only see this happen when a person finds a thread on a Google search, then has to register a new account to reply, thus resurrecting an old thread with his/her first post.

Moderator cut: Snarkiness not necessary.
There are one of several ways an old thread gets “resurrected”.
This thread from 2008 for instance
https://www.city-data.com/forum/reli...in-sacred.html
Recently lt was posted to and “resurrected” because people like it.
Another thread “Ask a Hindu” was “resurrected ” by me, a great thread from long ago.
The reasons why they get “resurrected” are as different as there are posters.
One could be searching for “forgiveness” as a term and find different threads. Which is probably how I found this. Forgiveness is something we all struggle with and have various opinions about it. It is a hot topic particularly in Religion and Spirituality forum
I plan to search for “Gita” as Miss H thinks she started a discussion thread on the Bhagavad Gita and I would like to read it and maybe post to it.
When reading a thread, at the bottom of it City Data invites you to explore several other threads that may be related to the current one. That is another way a thread can get “resurrected”.
Someone could be searching for posts by a particular poster. I am amazed how often that happens when in a discussion a poster’s words are repeated back to him. I wish i had that kind of rapid response.
When I “resurrected”. THIS thread i may not even have noticed the OP. I might have just responded to a particular post. I would havevdone that even if I did notice it.
Attributing motives is easy. But it is not the truth, it is only in the accuser’s mind. It is not real.
People get upset over many things, for their own reason, and it is not always comprehensible to others.
Unless a thread is closed i may continue to “resurruct” dormant threads that I find interesting unless City Data institutes a rule against it.

CD invites and encourages readers to post and use older threads. There have been contests with cash prizes on CD asking readers specifically to do exactly that. In this way readers become fluent in using the search function of CD. Because CD tells us to use existing threads on a topic instead of starting new threads on the same topic.

Interesting. I wish they would run the contest again, i could have made a pretty sum with all the resurrections.
It is funny how those who complain about updating an old thread also rejoice when a thread is closed as if it is some kind of win.

Who are these people who rejoice at closed threads? Try being specific, because I haven't seen that.

I don't know.

We don't close threads when people ask us to. We don't close threads when the question has been answered. We try to edit threads and keep them open. We have issued infractions to stop people from posting rather than close threads. We close threads when they become argumentative and are hopelessly off topic. We close threads when the editing required is too much work for the results that would be gained.

We have no control over contests, and the owner of the site sets the criteria when they take place, which has never been simple or clearly disclosed. There haven't been any contests for several years, and it is not likely that there will be any more.

I appreciate all the moderating work you do. We need good moderators like you and Mighty Queen to have a forum we enjoy as we do this. Of course without our posts there will be no forum, so we have a symbiotic relationship. The forum is as good as the quality of the posts so both of us are essential in keeping it so.

I never thought you closed a thread without good reason although i have been disappointed when it happens. I refuse to name names but when i find the post which heckled me because a thread got closed I will forward it to you. Not sure what good that will do but I wIll try and find it, but not today. It has been a joyous day for me and that is not what I plan do for the rest of the day.
I hope we can agree that dormant threads can be updated without throwing unnecessary aspersions cast on the poster. It is promoted by City Data, there is no good reason why not because these are not current topics being discussed, and there are some topic and discussions that are always relevant and of interest to this forum.
