They can’t be bothered to make their own threads. Mostly it’s the new accounts though that often do this.

I doubt they think that, but some post still have relevance. They also do it to make it appear again, so there would be more opinions on such subjects.

It's not that. People just don't look at the date before replying.

It's almost 100% just people seeing threads in related discussions and not noticing the date. I would say there should be a time cap but old threads can often be useful.

As RC it might be:

1. They are new and dont check.
2. They dont check.
3. They do it deliberately.

The people that follow may only look at the last few dates and assume a bumped thread is recent, rather than flipping back to the beginning.
