    [Date] Thread Title
    First time I saw this I said WTF!? I understand the theory, but don't agree with the execution nor think it's post friendly.

    If spam bumped the thread delete it and maybe put removed post that bumped old thread. Then highlight in bold and red the "are you sure you want to bump the old thread" verbiage.

    If it's new info, input or opinion that was posted then why are you disqualifying it by adding a date to thread title?

    With all due respect, I dint think it's a good policy at all.

    Case in point - the magic bullet thread --- I have no idea how many times I've seen people point to it and it's a sticky. But when I see the date. I think oh that old thread, it's still alive? And pass it by when I see the [2006] prefix, for no other reason than the date disclaimer and that's not fair to the thread nor the poster who cared to share.
    Continued Success,

    Thank You!!!!

    I hope we can continue to avoid such unfriendly practices, not withstanding the good intentions behind them.
