I have several times taken the time to reply to a thread, hit the submit amd then up comes a panel saying the thread is more than "X" days old and cannot be replied to. Honestly, why do you make us compile a reply and then tell us we are wasting our time ? If a thread is subject to a date expiry, then for God's sake institute an automatic CLOSED lock. Is that too much to ask ? When I reply to a thread, I do not give a fig about the date it was raised, I do not even look at it or the last reply date, if it is open, I reply to it. Then what do I get ? Some panel saying I have wasted my time. Please, come into the modern age and close threads which you consider too old to reply to. Not a lot to ask is it ?
