Is this still true today? If so, which directories have given you the best ROI?

We really do need a big red message on the "new thread" box, asking people to reactivate recent threads with the same topic rather than starting new ones.

Five threads on the same topic in the space of 50 threads (1975 -- 2025) in the same forum.
