It can also be useful to have a look at the date of the post you are replying to. If the thread has been several months without a reply, the conversation is probably done and dusted. In some cases, the original posters may not even post here any more. If you want to discuss something and there are no recent threads on the same topic, it probably warrants a new thread of its own.
