Yeah it makes no sense. I mean I have landed here from searching stuff via Google, and found a post or two but not what I was looking for as the peeps who started the thread just seemed to give up, for example. Web 2.0 killed the internet lol.

Yeah that's annoying as well, try to help people when and they just give up. Such threads will likely get deleted here if they really serve no purpose. No use in having pages of basically nothing.

Oh man yeah. We have all encountered a huge list of results full of promise, from the most carefully in-putted strings in to search engines to find just the question you were asking in the first place, sooo irritating. Boils my balls.

Again though that's more work. Plus there's the B Side. When do you define a thread truly dead? Cause someone might descend from the galaxy beyond and necropost with answers, I've seen that too (shoutouts to necroposters with actual answers).

I think if the thread had no resolution, and nobody is posted within months or more, I would probably say the thread is dead. Such posts could be kept in a new abandoned section I suppose..

One thing on the Internet which really annoys me, is when you have lots of the same questions with no resolutions, and you spend endless hours looking through other people which have the same problem no resolution. So on that basis I think it would just be better to remove the thread totally.

Of course such a thread may help spark investigation or have some tips which may still be relevant.. So it's difficult to know what to do really..
