Oh my, the ghosts of grumpiness past come back to haunt.

Surly ? Anti Social ? Moi ?

Really Tiara, you cut me to the quick.

Re: What is a g.r.p. hull

As a relatively new member I find it interesting how many old members comment on an old post that someone found probably by using a Google search for some obscure word or phrase. How does it harm any of you for an old thread to be resurrected? The urge for complete control runs strong in this group.......

AS new members come on board old thread revival can be a valuable learning source. if only to discover who are the grumpy old farts.

It doesn't harm anybody, unless it's resurrected to solely bash another user, as was in this case. That being said, I do find it rather amusing when a thread is resurrected to answer a question that was asked years earlier.

The initial revitalized post did nothing to advance the thread. It was an insult. I have no issue with older threads being revived if the discussion logically flows. The same subjects and themes keep coming back, so it makes sense to use an existing thread whenever possible. But Tiara's post was only intended to insult -- kinda like your post.

Nothing wrong with bringing back an old thread if the poster has good reason. 4 times out of 5, the newbie wouldn't post if they had any idea the age of the thread. Would this guy have posted if he realized he was commenting on a 9 year old post? I think not. At least, I hope not.

Re: What is a g.r.p. hull

Mike: Should I submit all my observations to you for clearance before posting? I though I was stating a pretty clear observation about behavior patterns on this forum, it was not my intent to attack anyone personally. My only other comment is that if the shoe fits, then you may be upset.

And I (and others) are pointing out you are wrong. If you cannot see this, and that you are simply adding insult to insult, then there is nothing I can do to enlighten you.
