A lot of vendor forums I participate in lack the feature. So, the number of times where some rando unearths a thread that petered out 1-5 years prior is more than I can count on my fingers and toes. It's always like "holy thread-resurrection, Batman!" Two times it's really annoying are:
1) Someone has a question about something that EOL'ed during the previous quiet period
2) When the vendor has hired someone new and have told their new person, "go participate with our community" and the newhire thinks resurrecting threads fulfills that mandate
