More irony! Reviving a thread about Necromancy again
- Pinata: We'd thought of that, but locking threads like that quickly becomes an onerous and time-consuming duty, plus we feel like control freak Nazis
Archiving was also thought of as a solution, but that carries the same constraints as locking, time and effort-wise, plus having a bunch of archives lying around seems cluttering.
Usually, though, when something is on the first page of a section, it's fair game. And pretty much anything outside the forums for actual writing is also fair game. Thought-provoking discussion can always be revived, even without the original poster there to participate.
