Does the age of a discussion matter if you post or not?

Does it matter to you how old a discussion is? For example if a post is a few weeks or a few months old do you still post? I usually only post in discussions that are recent. I usually don't post in a discussion that is more than two days old. I feel if I post in very old discussion that no one will see it. Maybe the original poster might go back and look at it, maybe not but if it's really old like a couple weeks-months they probably won't. Do you have a cutoff for how old a discussion is when you post?

i don't care about it. the oldest discussion i response is about one months ago. as i know a old discussion is behind the recent ones, but when you post a response it will go to a new position, go to the first place. so i think it is not necessary to worry about no one take attention about it.

I don't think it matters, I post in old discussions whether weeks or months, although I have come across a few close to a year old or more and wonder should I.... Would anyone care..... maybe I will look like an idiot?????? so I sort of stop and think No but it depends if it looks like the person who started the discussion would appriciate the input still and then I will....

For me, it does not matter if the posts is already weeks old or more than that as long as I like to respond to it and like the topic then I would give my reply to that posts. And also I enjoy reading other peoples opinion on the topics that interest me.

No, it doesn't really matter to me how old the post is, as far as it attracts my attention.. I only go for discussions that suit my interest, and never have I seen the starting time of any discussion here on mylot.. It dosen't really matter to me at all...

I don't make a discrimination on the age of a post, but I usually only respond to the recent ones because I go by what I have in my e-mail. Once you reply to a discussion, it goes to the top of the list anyway, so someone will see it eventually. I just really go by if I have a response to the subject matter or not.

If the topic is interesting, it doesn't matter how old it is. I will comment to it. Then when I browse through the list again that discussion is now on top. There is a good chance the author will see from their list of discussions they started that there is a new comment to their discussion. Happy posting..
