I never said delete. I said prune. There's a difference.
that being said, I don't want someone to rip me a new one because I post to a thread in a forum that is over 3 weeks old, but is still near the top of the thread list. I almost never go to page 2 on the forums unless I'm bored, and I never post replies to posts I find on page 2 unless that forum is EXTREMELY active, which, to date on CF, hasn't happened. I reply to all posts on the first page.
