Threads should be sorted by creation date rather than latest post date
Potential positive changes:
- spam threads will simply disappear: unless posters want to go 5 pages back to spam, which isn't likely
- necro-ing will not be possible (straight-forward enough)
- people are forced to give up on controversial topics that have been discussed at length (aka stop beating the dead horse)
Corollary #1: Obvious bad threads are deleted instead of locked
Spam/ad/troll threads need to be deleted in order to not take the space of legitimate threads.
Corollary #2: There should not be "post new thread" - and possibly "post new reply" - buttons at the top of the page, only at the bottom.
It'll make a (slight) inconvenience for people who want to make threads and replies without reading what others have written.
