I just visited a thread that is 6 years old and 14 pages long.
It's still 'alive' because the OP 'bumped' it...a bit like a prone 95 year old being defibbed.
It's not even a record - we've all come across threads much older and much, much longer.
There comes a point where you think, "This is ancient history. Please archive this old relic, good moderator."
You should then be allowed to start a new thread on the exact same topic - just because the previous thread 'died' a natural death.
So my question is, what is the lifespan of a thread?
Also, how long can a thread get before it becomes unwieldy and put out to grass?
