I agree that time-sensitive threads (looking for crew) shouldn't be revived but others might still be relevant years after their original posting.
As has been suggested sooooooooo many times, if a particular post bugs you, stay away from it.

Old threads rock. At least once every year the Cruising with bulldogs thread gets a revisit.
And I laugh my back side off.

Man, I get most of my info from other's threads. So seeing an old thread brought back because it is relevant to the person who resurrected it frequently does me a favor.
Time sensitive threads, as mentioned by others, are a different matter, and do make the resuscitater look clueless.

I think it depends on the context of the reviving post... if it's in answer to a 6 year old question and it's pretty obvious that the poster didn't realize the the OP wasn't current, then I don't think there's anything wrong with a gentle reminder to check the dates of posts before responding. Another good indicator is the ratio of views to responses. A post with 600 views and 2 responses is likely long out of date.
But there's nothing wrong with "bumping" an old post to revive the discussion or to add something relevant. As Shack indicated, sometimes not doing so will produce a suggestion to search old topics before starting a new thread Can't win sometimes.
