Re: Hurricane damaged boats

Once upon a time, America was not a third world country, and computer programmers tried to offer new and rich products. If we could only revert back 25 years, someone would offer forum software that grayed out old posts, so a six year old post and thread would appear in shadowy gray type that would instantly clue in the reader that they were looking at the ghosts of topics past.

Or, after two years without a post, simplylock the thread to encourage new ones.

But you'll notice, with all the "web forum" software out there, none of them have offered anything to flag or lock old threads, despite a number of public mentions of the concept.

Maybe I need to run down to the patent office, and then hire some young Chinese programmer, who still thinks innovation is the way out of poverty?
