No one has been patronizing to you. They were just explaining the 
informal custom in these forums. Please don't take it the wrong 

The forum software is a web interface to a newsgroup server. The 
software could be enhanced to prevent posting to old threads, but 
there's never been a need to (and people would still be able to 
post through the newsgroup server anyway). It's a fairly common 
convention across the internet (and has been for years) that 
reviving old threads is frowned upon (the term often used is 
"necroposting"). Normally, the warning provided is enough.

So let's leave this thread to Rest in Peace. And next time you 
attempt to post an old thread here, please allow the forum 
software to do it's thing when it warns you. Thanks!
