A question was asked and I attempted to answer it, at least from my perspective.

Just yesterday I picked up an old thread of Chainmakers, asking a question about his Panther build which he answered and someone else commented on. I've had a number of my old threads picked up again with a question or comment from someone. A thread is dead only if no one posts on it. Just my opinion anyway. The person who originally started the thread may be gone, but the rest of us are still here.
It's bad netiquette. If I came back and found someone had derailed my thread, I'd be pretty annoyed, and best believe everything in that thread would disappear.

Put the info in the right place, don't scatter it some more in tagless threads.
