Depends on the reason I guess. I've seen some pretty silly posts on old, old threads, but on the other hand, if someone starts a new thread about something that has already been posted, there are some "forum veterans" that will come back with, "that's already been discussed" or "learn to use the search function you freakin so and so" and these replies are usually not presented in what I'd call a very "PC" manner. So In a way, your damned if you do, damned if you don't. That kind of thing can cause a new user to shy away from the forums and I'd say that's a bad thing. I suppose if you had the same ol' group of 15 or 20 people posting here (like some other forums I can think of) and all of them were up to speed on what had been said from day one, none of that would happen. But it would also get kinda boring.

That'll be 2
