dredging the dregs
I think we're seeing the unintended consequences of the "similar threads" box which will dredge up any old threads that happen to have similar titles as what you're viewing at the time. .....no matter how much that really stupid old thread should've been left in digital oblivion.
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
