    When someone replies to an old thread it brings it back up to the top. I suspect most of us don't look at the date of a post and then think the post is new because it is at the top of the page. We then reply not realizing the threads is years old and in most cases the problem asked about was long solved. I've relied to an old thread in the past and then felt stupid later when I realized the thread was really old.

    This is the off topic forum. I think there would be a lot more value in one of the woodworking forums to bring up old stuff rather than in the off topic forum.

    We now have three separate ancient threads relating to grass and lawns revived by the same person. He has now posted an identical post to all three with a link to an artificial lawn supplier.

    Steve,

    I red flag those guys so they can be removed from the forum... they're almost always here to push their own product / service.
