    I'd just noticed recently over the last few days lots of threads popping up where the OP was from 2014 or something like that, there's about a two or four year gap and someone will post on it again, when a lot of the time it'd be way too late for their advice to be relevant anymore.

    The "Related discussions" at the bottom of the threads tends to link to old ones, especially if the topic is quite niche.

    Either that or people are searching for something and don't look at the thread date before replying
