    You find people response to really old topics then the topic appears in the "new" list, then the out-of-date information becomes "fact", then problems occur as people try applying old fixes that are no longer required rather then starting a new topic and getting a proper response.

    Plus it's annoying getting notifications for really old topics and I hate having to manually go in an unsubscribe.
