I am new to these forums and contributing to forums in general although I have been viewing these and others for years. My question is, why is it so horrible for people to reply to an old thread? I have seen a couple recently where someone did it (likely by mistake) and the poster always gets completely mocked for it. Why is this such a horrible thing - especially if we are encouraged to find existing threads before starting a new one? Honest question here. Hoping someone in the community can shed some light on the subject for me.
