We have had an infestation.

Posters, please *look at the date of the last post* before you ask a question in a thread you dredged up in your browser, especially if the question you're asking has nothing to do with the original post.

You have a much better chance of receiving a meaningful response if you start a new post for your question.

In fact, said meaningful response is probably in that very thread. Whether or not that's the response the thread hijacker wants is a whole other issue worthy of yet another thread to be hijacked at a later date.

Hey, did you know a certain nasty white pigeon also chose Jingle Bell Rock to be part of her name? Bwahahaha!

meh, I've been changing my name every 36-48 hours during the holiday season, anyway. Prolly change my name again later.

PeepDittie says:
Yeah, I'd noticed that, too. Just don't change it to Dittie again, or any reasonable facsimile thereof, m'kay? lol

but, but, but it's zombies everywhere on TV nowadays, why not here?

No probs. It was fun while it lasted, though.

Ah, The Dittie isn't so sure.

I wish a certain zombiescottposter would arise and read his email! 10 days and counting. He must not like the gift I'm trying to give him!

Well, and then someone else will complain that new posters don't look up the answers in the archives and they shouldn't start a new thread.

It's all evens out :)

That has concerned me as well. It can appear as if they are being given conflicting, um, er, "advice."

The real problem, of course, if that I frequently forget to look at the date stamps on posts when I reply! I can't blame that on the poster.

Yes, sad but true, I can be TSTL.

Oh, I just looooooooove this place. Which way do you really want it? Posters asking questions that "have been asked a thousand times before" (which everyone complains about and, subsequently, bashes the poster) or "dredging up zombie threads" (which, again, everyone complains about and, again, subsequently, bashes the poster)? Geez!

If it were a perfect world (translation: everyone does what **I** want them to do! LOL!) people would, in fact, do at least a rudimentary search (in "help" first though) on the forum for topics related to their issue.

But, here's the thing, then they would READ that thread to see if, perhaps, their issue/question had already been addressed thus negating their need to post at all.

The true issue with zombie threads (apart from the TSTL part of my nature) is that the "new" posting, in many cases, has already been answered.

Otherwise, frankly, as long as there is no self-promotion or troll-indication, this is one of my lesser concerns.

Yours, practicing on reading those date stamps!

It isn't so bad when the zombie thread is relevant to the Kindle they have and to their question.

I know. The past 4days or so have been really bad, though. Sheesh.

For the most part, that happens in pricing threads, and "OMG the Fire doesn't have Flash!" (Nor does it vacuum or take out the trash), very few other topics ;-)

Anne Shirley says:
What amazes me is when people resurrect a zombie thread to ask an utterly unrelated question, out of the blue, i.e. six month old thread about corn dogs and a single new post asking how to cook filet mignon. Teh stewpit boggles. Not so much annoying as really stewpit - and far less likely to be answered, if the poster actually cares at all.
