On many forums, the second a zombie thread comes back, mods will close the thread out, in almost every instance. The fact that they don't do it on here, I have no idea why. And every forum will call out a poster reviving a zombie thread. Every. Because it tends to trick people into responding, to a thread that's at the top of the new threads pile, and they always get annoyed when the realized.It's not the fact a zombie thread has been revived as I can't stand that either but it's the stupid incessant complaining by others who have nothing better to do than add their two cents in to only complain which in my opinion makes this forum a chore to be a member of. Who cares if it's a zombie thread? Don't read it. Ignore it. Move on.
So not only do we have to read through a bunch of deja vu threads but we ALSO have to slog through jamesbiz's constant complaining about it. DOUBLE garbage. So if he's gonna call out posters for reviving zombie threads, I'm gonna call him out for not just moving on. I don't want to read his complaints. They are borderline hostile and passive aggressive. Not appreciated here.
And for the record, it's not up to any members to decide how another member should read and/or respond to any thread whatsoever. Does not matter one iota if someone joined 4 years ago and never posted. Perhaps they're here every day reading and have nothing to add. That's their choice not yours. And, in this case, the poster who revived the thread actually ADDED information to the thread by providing the correct case diameter. There is NO requirement that they continue to post. After saying "it's 41mm per TAG's website" what is he supposed to do? Post again and again and again saying "Oh, it's also stainLESS steel, not stainPROOF" or some other tid bit? NO, he added important info to the thread and that's all he needed to do. "Disappearing" was the appropriate thing to do until someone else added to the conversation. Instead he gets a jab. Way to treat another relatively new member who's only posted once.
So ZoeysDad's post is not strange at all. Seems like it simply added to the conversation which is what I'm here for, not the complaints.
But you, went completely insane on a fairly innocuous comment. As If I some how went after you personally. Which is funny, considering what you did to me before.
And lol to " jamesbiz's constant complaining about it" and calling my post hostile? And you can't have something be passive aggressive AND hostile. Pick one. Yet I can show where you have been hostile to ME. You really can't stand me, and you can't stand not getting the first and last word, when it comes to me. No one has ever forced you to interact with me. So don't.
Aside from the fact, that no one forced you to read it, let alone post this diatribe to it, or the initial response in the first place. You chose to read it, and chose to respond, adding even more garbage to the thread. Which just adds to the overwhelming irony after you said " Don't read it. Ignore it. Move on'. YOU READ IT. YOU DID NOT IGNORE IT. YOU DID NOT MOVE ON.
And when I said he posted and disapeared, I clearly didn't mean from THIS thread. Why the hell would I even say that? You literally decided to write 4 sentences, based on your own assumption, just so you could find yet another way to attack me. He commented here, than didn't post again ANYWHERE.
If this forum is a chore to be a member of, then once again, no one is forcing you to be a member of this forum.
