Is there some reason this is happening lately so much?
Is it a forum glitch that people are responding to?

From what "I" look at, I can't imagine it so but.....

Just a simple matter of people not looking at the dates of the posts they respond to, nor bothering to read the rules before they post. drainbread being the exception, of course.

I'm just sayin... to respond to a post from 3 years ago, you would have to go through pages and pages to find it...

It happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I clicked "View posts since your last visit" and there was a year-old post and I responded without looking at the date. Reloadron closed the thread.

Ahhh se, no that's what I'm talking about.
I have never used that button myself so maybe it is a glitch.
Thanks OM

I'm not sure if it applies in your examples but in some low traffic sections, threads can remain on page one for quite some time.

Unless you specifically check the date of the last post it could look like a recent thread.

Ah, but had someone already responded to it, and necro'd it before you got there? Or did you do the necro'ing?
