Occasionally I will start reading a forum post that has confusing information in it. Because I have been here for several months now, sometimes I can recognize when the information is out-dated. However, I often get quite a ways through the thread before I look back and realize that someone has commented on and therefore refreshed a discussion post from 2, 3, or even 4+ years ago. It makes it quite confusing. Is there a way to delete forum info after a certain time period?
There is a warning in place that explains that a forum thread is very old before one posts to it.
We also generally advise not to post to a forum thread that has not had activity for some time.
Every forum post has a time a time indicator, so you can use that to determine if the information is timely.

Twice, now, I've written a hub, the idea for which came from the WTI forum thread...except, I belatedly discovered that it was an old post....In searching for any archives, I am only directed to the actual...
