    Recently we have seen an increase in the number of threads which have been brought back up the board from around July, August time - when the thread is effectively dead, and it would be more effective to start a new one.

    When these threads appear, after being bumped back up, can I please urge other members not to go straight to replying to the most recent reply, but indeed check the date (and relevence) of the thread.

    Things such as "What were your GCSE results?" were clearly for in and around August 21st 2003, and have little purpose now.

    Key give aways folks, are threads which say they have been started by Unregistered (!).

    Lets use a little bit of common sense please.

    Our jobs are already difficult enough.

    Apart from : what if someone wants to start a thread about GCSE results? Is the ideal thing to a) restart an old thread or B) post a new thread about something there once was? Hmmmm??wq
