Re: Posting in old threads
Two issues here:
Posting in old threads:
As it stands now, posting in aged threads is not being policed... much. Truth is, it's really not that big of a problem. When it goes from a simple "Hey was this ever figured out" to a complete thread hijack, then those are monitored. We really haven't seen a whole lot of that though and there's only one case I recall in the past 8 mo's where an aged thread was resurrected. True that it was also hijacked, but one in 8 months seems hardly worthy of another line on an already cumbersome rules page IMHO. I imagine that if it became a huge issue, the rule would be put back in place.
Spammers posting links in profile
There are controls in place that prevent new members from posting links period. It would appear that the mechanism doesn't take into account profiles. The code monkeys will need to take a look and see if this mechanism can also police the profiles.
Me: You'd think as the dominant species we wouldn't be so effing stupid.
J: We're just intelligent enough to be completely effing stupid.
