I reply to an old deposit poll thread from history section which I thought was interesting.

Playing at RTG? Where else can I play? Have no other options... Yes I have switched to the local tribal casino for blackjack.

Hello you,

We had a discussion in May about "bumping old threads" :

http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/online-casinos/20578-3dice-csp-random-you-tell-me.html

As Bryan states in post 22:

Actually, bumping up really old threads is considered bad forum etiquette. Mainly because many of the participants in the original thread could have dormant accounts or just not monitoring that thread anymore. It's called "necrobumping" - bringing dead threads to life.

One solution: you see an interesting (but really old thread) - start a new thread referencing the older one. This guarantees a fresh dialogue and not one that needs to be dusted off.
