Another pro that occurs to me because it just happened: Old threads show up in your subscription feed, which is always the first area I check. So it's more likely to be noticed by people who already believe it's interesting and/or relevant.

Another con: If I'm not already subscribed, I tend to ignore new posts on really old threads with lots of pages, especially if I'm new to a board, because I don't want to take the time to read all the pages (especially at the 40 posts per page I have set).
