Genesis' 'Misunderstanding'/Zeppelin's 'Fool In The Rain'

And the correct release dates were already mentioned in the fifth post of the thread, as well as the 34th post. And prominently quoted three posts up from zombie revival post.

There must be some misunderstanding.

And I feel like a fool. In the rain.

Yes, I know. It’s beyond silly that some people think that matters, much less is problematic. Internet discussions can be stateless, going on indefinitely. Nothing wrong with that. This thread still shows up in searches. So a response corrects a fallacy that otherwise would continue to be spread anew.

However, message boards are also communities, and posting is participating in that community. When you reply to a poster, you are, in a very real sense, actually trying to talk to said poster.

That’s not to say that you should never reply to an old thread, but that it is still a good idea to see if what you said actually contains new information or would otherwise be important enough to warrant speaking.

It does seem like, in this case, you just repeated a previous post.
