Message Too Old, No Replies

I find it odd that I can't respond to threads started in August

this MSN UK one for example

[webmasterworld.com...]

I tried to respond to something there and it says the thread is closed.

Why can't threads stay open? Odd.

It's still odd. If I figure out something a couple of months later regarding some PPC program, seems logical to share it in the thread that it was originally brought up.

With threads being locked so quickly, now I understand better why the same info is rehashed sometimes.

There is one other thing to remember; If the thread is old it may not contain the most recent thinking. Therefore, a new thread can often link to older information, and yet contain the most recent material.

And if not, you can always sticky mail a forum moderator or admin and request a *bump* so you can respond in that thread.
