I guess he wants to get his post count up quick.
He does seem to be padding his post count, doesn't he? Unfortunately, post count doesn't indicate the quality of those posts. Some people here have a high post count, and rarely if ever post anything that's actually about model railroading.
As far as thread resurrections, I agree that there may be some good info buried in these old threads, and I certainly think that newbies -- heck, everyone, really -- should spend some time reading old posts before asking a question.
I only object in two cases: when the new post attempts to answer s specific question when the OP is long gone; and when someone starts a new thread on a subject that is still on the first page of older threads.
