automatically lock old threads?

There seems to be (to my eyes) a flurry of posts to zombie threads, some many years deceased. Is there a way (and desire from mods) to automatically lock threads after some extended period of inactivity? If there isn't any comment for 18-24 months, surely it's dead, Jim.

Old content is definitely valuable, but reanimated just gums up the works.

Re: automatically lock old threads?

I always report them when they get bumped by someone other than the OP. That's the fastest way. Once in a while someone comes back after many years and updates, that's always nice to see, and nice if they bump their old thread.

People don't get a free pass to cheat just because their marriage sucks.
