    Default Old Threads

    Anyone ever wonder why FH.com doesn't remove threads more than 1 yr old?

    I have actually found some good information in old threads. Plus, if you want to know how we all felt about lights on POV's in 1999, that is there for enjoyment.

    Ditto. Just today I was able to find some good info on a Jaws power unit in some old threads.

    No. There is useful information in them.

    No, because they have to at least 18 to be on their own.

    YES! I do. The entire World and Universal Space/Time Continum collapses, and we all know that when the Space/Time Continum collapes, that puts those fellers in da White Hats all in a tizzy and they start running around waving their arms in the air asking really silly questions like "Why am I here?" hehehehehehee Its about that time that the REALLY BIG Darksuckers go into action and, well thats bad too.

    But to answer the question about "old threads": If FH staff deleted them after a year, then our esteemed colleague, Wurj1 could not say ".... Over Here... ---->"

    It is hard enough to get the stuff that REALLY shouldn't be here (spam and other fecal matter) to get deleted... forget old threads!

    But the really good threads, the ones you can actually learn something from, are the old ones. It seems like here lately most of the threads are pointless and have nothing to do with Fire Fighting or EMS
