Lately I've seen some highly intelligent individuals raising threads from years ago. On many forums (today it was these and the shadow ones).

Here is my question - what is their motive? They must be incredibly smart, and I would learn from them if I could. Before you answer "trolling", consider this: only the original troll is considered smart. The others are just cheap mimics. So it can't be that, can it?

You might say they wanted to comment on a thread of the same subject. If that is the case, they are indeed smart to dig through four years of threads just to find the one that fits their theme the best. In the words of Brontes, " I am... Impressed".

Please share your thoughts on this subject. Who knows - maybe one day, in five years, this thread will be necroed as well...

sometimes people just use the 'search' function for something only old topics exist and read stuff that they strongly agree/disagree with such that they are urged to respond.

often it's just trolling. sometimes with an agenda - some people find an old and removed feature a good idea.

and sometimes it's just boredom. i mean why not confuse people for fun?

Well, things change. These days we have short attention spans, back in the day grammar was optional.

That would be a LOBOTOMIZED fruit fly.
I am telling the truth, honestly! I am as honest as the day is long! Besides, I am a terrible liar, everyone can see when I am lying - my lips are moving.
Like most other subs, I have a Referral Link. Clicking it gets you some stuff, and me some stuff too.

Nothing wrong with necro if it's on topic and adding something beyond "QFT" or "bump".

Forum mods also stated that it's all right as long as it's constructive and on topic.

Sometimes there's a desire to add own thoughts to an old topic and necro an old thread to put it into context.

Trolls tell people to stop making threads because there are dozens of threads about the same topic.
Trolls complain when people post in one of dozens of threads and tell them to make a new thread.
