I've noticed lately a lot of very old threads (A year or older) being bumped and posted to with little or no substance. Is there anything that can be done about this? Could there be something posted in the FAQ about it?

Its very annoying to read threads that seem new upon first glance that are actually quite old and dated. I understand that there are legitimate reasons to bump old threads, but I often see them resurrected for no reason other than a one word response that adds little to the original conversation.
