They were created to float through time in an unresolved condition for eternity...  :'(
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

Some posts don't die fast enough, that's for sure... ;)

Threads after six months with no updates should get auto-locked. I hate it when dead threads get resurrected with a dumb comment that doesn't even pertain to the original question.

Some thread topics can carry useful information for a long way past 6 months. You can't just put a time limit on them like that. It is rarely black & white, & usually many shades of grey.

many shades of grey.

And at times 50 shades of grey.

Yes, it would be a good idea.  ;)

Hello Manjaro World,

I think for all posts  it would be not a good idea. When I was new, many old posts helped me to understand Manjaro. But there might be some posts which are not for the eternity. But who should decide this? There is work enough.
thanx Thom

I can find my very first post going back a year. Providing it's not locked.
