There seems to be a little imbalance between the "why did you resurrect this old thread" and the "there have been several threads about that, please use the search function." If I may offer a bit of a guideline: if you have questions or comments about general topics, first do a search for pertinent threads. If you find thread(s), have a closer look at the opening post in that thread. When was it posted, and was it a member-specific topic (like "am I gay" or "I have a relationship problem, help me please") then it probably should not be revived, especially if it is several years old. If, on the other hand, it is a broader post (such as "what is the meaning of life" or "can a person be both gay and republican") then it possibly could be revived rather than starting a new thread on an old topic. If you cannot find the subject you searched, in any threads (old or recent) then you should start a new thread. Does anyone else agree?
