    It seems that it's becoming fairly common for a newbie to come in and start bumping threads that are several years old i.e. here.
    Has it ever been considered, or is it possible to have threads lock them self after a very generous period of inactivity (years)?

    Sometimes it's fun to bump threads from back in the day.. Like UKMans "Bump" thread..

    I do however agree that people that bump old threads in the BT section should get a kick up the back side..

    I guess it could be a giggle to bump and thread asking for a torrentit or Loki invite.

    Some say that the lounge is unmoderated and there are threads that are bumped as jokes/memories/whatever.

    In other sections I'd say is pretty annoying. Especially when it's just a pointless post like "thx/nice" and I'm pretty sure they are dealt with (particularly when you report them)...

    Usually we just delete the post and the thread return back to the depths, but if members begins posting it again, I typically leave it.

    I also think auto-locking threads is a bit excessive.
