    just out of curiosity and i sorry if you already answered this before
    but what is the deal with bumping old threads?
    is it a bandwidth thing or something?

    What's a Call Out thread?

    And since I'm asking questions anyway: what's a Nubian? :ears:

    I also unblocked sublux so I can see his call-out melt thread when he comes back.

    We went over this at length when the issue came up with @LawyerLarry 's BFF @smichal but to summarize it's a variety of things:

    It's a standard practice for most message boards
    People often get confused and think they are responding to a new thread
    Often brings up old issues and old posters that are better left forgotten
    We don't limit the starting of new threads, old threads that may have relevance to something new can be linked in a new thread which clarifies to members that they are in fact reading a dated thread if they click the link
    Helps reduce trolling

    A thread referencing a member is a negative way, for example:

    @Chriza is a Huge Faggot!

    I guess being bad at sucking it better than being good at sucking.
