A blast from the past.
I hope some moderator doesn't go off on him. Chill baby, chill.
Reminding someone that they have just resurrected an ancient thread is no sin, indeed replying to said thread will not consign you to purgatory either. Newcomers often read through ancient stuff and reply without realising what they are doing, a gentle reminder can be of use. I'm thinking TQA was in order.
OTOH, dumping on the poor unsuspecting noob from a great height is neither polite nor welcoming and actively discouraged. I doubt quite frankly that while moderators , particularly those of a fuzzy disposition, have been known to mutter inappropriate thoughts at times, we are not likely to dump on noobs who commit this minor infraction.
