Well said. A six year old thread bumped by just a word 'exactly'. WTAF is the point of that?

It would be easy to close the comment box and make someone press an 'open zombie thread' before they're allowed to post!

Strange !

It sorts out those that RTFT from those that don't. grin

Thats true Sparkling mind you I've just read a full thread about housing and I'm shocked

There was one this afternoon I spent a not inconsiderable time reading, a heart-wrenching tale of a poster being wxcluded from her sister's wedding party when her oter sisters were bms and her brother the groom.
Luckily I flipped the thread when I got halfway, only to realise it was from 2012.

Do you know what though, I nearly did this before totally by accident. I was reading an old thread, got engrossed, went to make some food, came back and nearly posted a heated reply!

I realised just in time! grin

Ive read bloody loads of zombie threads today! www.mumsnet.com/Talk/am_i_being_unreasonable/2278862-AIBU-for-kicking-my-husband-out

They seem to keep cropping up on FB
I agree, a Zombie alert at the top of each page, or something, would be more useful than the current notification at the end.

There was one from about 2012 bumped earlier (I forget which one now) with the scintillating post 'exactly' and another with with long, heart felt advice from 2010 (I think) THE OP HAS MOVED ON, YOU SHOULD TOO!

There was one earlier from 2012 about not being able to afford a conservatory due to a badly worded invoice... I would really like to know what happened to the OP in that one! <totally overinvested>

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Sun 01-May-16 21:48:02

PortiaCastis Sun 01-May-16 21:49:38

Is there a reason why they don't get locked?
Like on AIBU or what have you, as soon as noones posted in it for 5 days it auto locks and noone can post in it again, ever.
Or just remove them all after 60days.
