Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
I've seen reproaches for resurrecting old threads.
I've seen reproaches for opening new threads when an old thread already discusses the topic.
I personally have no objection to either. I find that people who ask "the same thing again" usually have a slightly different angle. I find that people who resurrect old threads usually have something new to say, and adding it to an old thread means people who previously posted on the subject don't need to repeat themselves if they don't want to.
I prefer to keep the system such that it allows maximum options. We're adults here and we're capable of deciding for ourselves which threads we want to follow. I've got enough silencing and freedom suppression from the Harper government, I don't need it here too.
