Newbie to this forum


I am new to this website and forum, and I am trying to first figure how the postings work (I am more used to the way of doing things). I set my options to send me an email of recent posts, as of yesterday. So far I have receieved two notifications regarding new posts, but the one that I wished to read:

 does not show a new reply posted since a month ago. Am I missing something here?

Welcome to TFL, Russ.

If you checked the very first post in the thread you referenced, you'll see it was posted in 2006.

You're not missing anything.  It's just a very old thread and most of the action happened at the beginning.  

If you go to the bottom of the page, you'll see a link for "activity tracker."  Click that and it will take you to a list of recent postings in all threads and blogs.

Thanks, I did originally notice the date, I just didn't get why I was being notified that it was a new post.

Because a spammer posted a comment on it and by the time you got there the spam had been removed.
