Generally, it's best not to bump really old threads just for the sake of it, if there is something really important to add, technically insightful, an absolute solution, and you know that the original poster is still active on the forums... then the 2 week rule could perhaps be bent a little...
gmcrepair:, we're not running a vigilante community. if you see a problem with a post, report it, then a mod will come along. and if the post has no value to it that post will be removed so that the thread falls back to the bottom, or the thread could be locked. or the post could be split out to a new post. or any number of solutions that would have had a more positive impact that arguing with new people who aren't entirely aufáit with the rules.
