A little knowledge is a little bit dangerous.
That's true, Lusting, especially when one has so little as not to know the question, let alone its answer.
But now I understand the question, I think. It's not, as someone suggested, to be or not to be. No, but whether one has the authority and the audacity to stand up and say to all the world, this thread is dead! And I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, one does ... but only one: the Under-Secretary of the Dead Posts Society ... what's his name, the scrivener, Bartleby. Fortunately, the old fart hasn't been snooping around much in ages.
So do carry on. I'm outta here. Going back down to the archives looking for threads that've unraveled. You'd be surprised at the amount of interesting stuff down there. Dustier than hell, but that's no problem for a pepper sniffer.
