I think the anchoring threads although very tired with the same old things in them were extremely informative. I found out that my tried and true CQR is not the best in some situations and definitely not as popular as some of the new fangled designs.

As one who has limited time I do like to go back and read some of the older thrashed threads when I have a moment. Apart from some great entertainment most have some really cool info in them.

I like the ones where a couple of posters start out agreeing but 10 pages later they are at seriously opposed to each others view

It is funny...I have never looked at a monohull or multihull thread and gotten into a pizzing match.

It goes along with the saying "A man, who's convinced, against his will, is of the same opinion still."

To me they are all pointy in the front, have stick(s) in the middle

How about to insure or not to insure? I see two choirs and two preachers.

Thread topics actually not get old and tired. It is the readers that get tired of them. Leave the thread topics alone and go to the real source of old and tired - the readers.

Note I say the readers - not the posters; the posters are by definition not tired otherwise they wouldn't post.

Not sure how you would locate or limit the readers.

This is a common forum type of question. Of course there tends to be a lot of repeat quetions because people find the site and don't look though it before asking the question. I tend to read though the old ones in search of my answers (I don't think I've ever asked a question that was on my mind that led me to this site to start with). But lots of times the thread becomes full of the "look up the old ...." threads. I have noticed everywhere in internet forums that lots of people will spend time to answer and basically tell the person they are wasting the repliers time because they didn't do it a search first, but of course the person spent the time to write this when they could have just moved on. So my option is not to limit the topics no matter how often it has been asked, but instead those of us reading it just shouldn't borther to respond (am I gulity now on not following this :-).

I don't know - that would seem a bit unfriendly. New members of the forum should definitely be 'encouraged' to search for topics before posting questions. Responses to "been there - done that" topics can be simple and sweet - excellent question, and one with many complicated issues - we suggest you check out previous threads. Done.

More detailed questions then might follow, re-sparking the debate - only in new exciting ways!

Nobody is being forced to read, or engage in a thread. If it is tiresome to you then simply move on. I have seen new point of views after you think everything that could be typed has been typed. Then all of a sudden it starts up again. Mostly it's whiners that bug me, and second is know it alls.........
