Close threads after no activity

Can the webmaster please consider closing threads after a while. I keep seeing entries worth of comment then I realize they are seven years old and out of date.  If they are commented on, they show up in the "new" column.

I agree.  I think it's good to be able to search for certain terms and to read from other's experience and advice but not to be able to comment and bring around a thread that's 10 years old.

I like seeing the old threads, because many of the problems in stepland are timeless and the advice is still good.  But sometimes you click on it, forget it's old and comment, so if commenting was turned off, that would be ideal.

I agree that old comments can still be applicableto present problems (a bit frightening I know!) but I would love to keep the comments of people that have been banned. As someone who remembers the great cull I'd love to see the sometimes priceless advice they gave again. If that isn't possible then preventing comments is a good compromise.
