I wish people *would* resurrect old threads, rather than just start a new thread covering the same old ground. At least that way there is a chance that they may have read the previous correspondence.
I agree. And if it were a lot easier to search for past threads on an idea… But StackOverflow couldn’t solve that problem in over a decade of trying, without the limitations of email underneath (you can’t rename the subject of an old thread, link it to a later one, etc.), and all of their quasi-competitors have done even worse, so that’s not a serious proposal, just a blue-sky wish.
