Right now there’s a forum in this section on “Write-Protecting USB Drives” which received its last visible post in 2013. Yet it appears on the list as though it was updated yesterday.
In addition … I seriously think that all forums ought to have a “time lock.” After a certain age, and/or period of inactivity, you can’t “resurrect” them anymore. Part of the justification is that the subject matter – Blender itself – changes so very fast. Topics posted several years ago might no longer be relevant, and it is misleading to “resurrect” a very old topic in such a way as to imply that what it was saying “then” still even applies “now.”
