Start a new topic or post on an older one?

    As often noted by our forum members, identical subjects are posted but on new threads, by different people. Yesterday, I asked a question on a medical issue that has been discussed dozens of times. I posted on an older thread that related closest to my thoughts. As has happened many times before, there was no response.

    Therefore, is it better to start a "New Topic," rather than post on an appropriate but older thread?

    Thank you.

    I think it depends - if it's a natural continuation of the topic, posting on the old one makes sense.

    Sometimes it's really a "fresh" conversation though.

    I think sometimes if people read an old topic and know the people had the conversation 10+ years ago, there's slightly less inclination to continue it than if it's new.

    Thanks, Simon!

    I guess, then, I'll start anew.

    Gratefully, . . .

    I would suggest posting a new one but referencing the old one.

    That's a good idea, Blondie!

    Going to do that right now.
