At the risk of being called a whiner again, I'll add a couple more statements.

I agree that it is good to top an old post.
I agree that it is good to add a new comment to an old post.
I agree that it simplifies searches if posters add to older posts instead of always starting new ones.
I agree that it is good when people go back to their old posts and add additional comments, especially after their trip.
I'm sorry if anyone misinterpreted my remarks as thinking any of these were bad ideas.

My only reason for making my original suggestion was that if you look at the date of the original first, it might make a difference in what you say. Maybe I'm the only one dumb enough to answer a post thinking its new when it is actually a year or two old. I will continue to add comments to old posts, it's just that I think the comments will be more relevant if I have checked to see when the thread started first.

maybe you are the only dumb one.
maybe you are whiney.
maybe you should not defend yourself everytime someone says something critical of you.
this may become a nightmare before you know it.

I perfectly understood what Patrick meant: we often over read the posts, as Patrick mentioned, not only "when" the o.p. posted, but also, misunderstanding what is being asked, or ignoring if a question was already answered, often repeating the very same information given already by a previous poster. I just don't know whether reading all that was already written would be more time consuming than simply over reading, and posting no matter how properly or not.

Being more attentive would surely keep the threads "cleaner" and more attached to the original post, question or subject, however, I realized that it's just as Fodors board is, and the way people like it to be, a little messy and more spontaneous.
