Someone makes a new thread for a subject that already has its own thread, other people get mad.

Someone searches for and finds a thread about the subject they want to post, other people get mad.

I really don't get it.

What was contributed by the poster that dug up a 7 month old (not being posted) thread that is 3.5 years old? Stupid resurrection of a widely known issue.
