.If you had made a new thread someone would have told you to use the search box, If you use the search box someone will ask why your bringing up an old thread.
That is a very interesting observation.
I suggest making a new thread to discuss old threads, then, when someone uses the search box they can find the new thread, instead of the old one. The new thread could then direct one to the search box to search for the old thread which, btw, would be old and therefore may not be applicable anymore. If that is the case, all you would need to do is start a new thread.
I think that makes sense.
