From time to time you will see that we edit a post with an information message indicating that the original thread was very old.
Most of the time we do that because the members involved in the thread are no longer members at Spine-Health.
It is much better to create a NEW topic than to post to an old one.
Next time take a look at some of the dates on a thread. Check the original thread and then the date of the last post.
Some things never changed, but they have been so many advances in spinal care that even threads over 18 months ago could
be very outdated.
It is not a forum violation to post to an old thread, but most of the time it does not make forum sense.
When we migrate to the new system, many of those old Anonymous threads will not be carried forward. So, it makes sense NOT to post to those old ones, but
instead create new threads.
