Re: Older threads on this list
I've never seen anything indicating that old threads are blocked. on other groups.io lists I'm on, sometimes people revive a thread after a month or cloase to it. Nor have I seen any setting about threads expiring after a certain amount of time.

Do you mean that you have recently replied to an old thread, which hasn't
otherwise seen any activity for some time, and your new posting hasn't
I don't see why the age of the last posting to a thread would make any
difference to whether a new comment in that thread appears or not.
As for threads being blocked by moderators, I know this has happened in a very
few cases, but was it really such a thread that you've seen (or not seen) a
recent reply not appearing on?
