    Question Why you have "Necromancy"?

    I don't understand how you can have "necromancy" issues to begin with. Why not simply auto close threads after a period of inactivity?

    Many forums encourage users to search before posting to avoid duplicates, it's obvious that people here are not paying too much attention to the date of the last post once they find their topic.

    If the threads were auto closed, once found they would see they can't reply so they would make a new thread without making you waste time.

    Re: Why you have "Necromancy"?

    Where there are forums , there is Necromancy.

    We have asked Canonical to implement a policy of archiving "old" posts. Posts > 1 year old every 6 months or some such. Details have not been determined.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
