I often wonder why there isn't a mechanism to automatically close any thread that has been inactive for a set period of time, say 6 months. That would allow us to read the older threads but prevent us from posting to them. I've done it myself a few times when the month and day are close to the current date but I somehow don't notice the year in the date is older than the current year.
