Thank you for your reply.
I am no longer reporting individual posts for forum abuse by necroposting. I note that these topics remain open and available for forum necropost abuse. While two of the individual posts referred to in this topic have been removed, the topics themselves remain open for further abuse.
In one case that I mentioned earlier in this topic, the offending post made two days ago remains there on a topic that was started four years ago.
A couple of days ago I asked a question about a topic (concerning an event that took place three years ago). My remarks were very on-topic. I asked, in that topic, if someone could explain why this topic remained open. The topic had been used by someone else a few hours before I made my contribution. I asked, in relation to the resurrection of the topic, if that topic should remain open. I was not posting for the fun of it; it was not for my amusement. I sought an answer to the question. Instead of answering the question, my contribution was removed.
The point of this topic is to request a policy that spells out what necroposting is about and how it is harmful to the forum. Because there is not forum rule relating to necroposting and because there is a belief that the moderation team have the matter in hand, I see no need to go on with this discussion. I also see no need for anyone to complain when topics are resurrected (in some cases many years after the events, issues and subject matter is no longer of current relevance). As a consequence, I feel obligated to not report messages for necroposting.
I've always felt that I have been a responsible and diligent member of this community. I have always appreciated the help, advice, guidance and willingness by the forum moderators to act on matters I have brought to their attention. Given the situation I now find myself in, I will have to let the moderators figure things out for themselves.
Sorry, Olaf, but that's just how I feel about it.
