Perhaps I misunderstand. Or, this is a failure of logic.
Say there was a new fix, which wasn't likely. Wouldn't that have been best placed where one could find the other remedies???
As far as I am aware, there is no policy on this forum which requires members to revive old threads when they want to ask a question which has already been discussed (though some of us do).
I agree that in some cases (on important problems like cam wiping) it's better to have all the info in one thread. But that hardly applies to the 'vital' question of high mileage Elises. And even in the case of cam wiping, there are numerous separate threads on its causes and consequences.
If the existence of multiple threads irks you, try and get the policy changed. Or just don't read the offending thread. In either case, stop being a busybody.
