It is not skewing the argument it is why BetterRed made the argument to begin with. If you look at post 2 above you'll see I recognize that Old Threads have their place, but making the Old Thread Warning easier to see would benefit all forums.

Being subscribe to the old thread makes it immensely easier to avoid confusing it with a new thread and ignoring the thread is after the fact and is of know benefit.

This is what I do by hand in the Calibre forum, when I catch them, in order to give folks a heads up.
