Here's how this older type of message board works: Every time somebody posts on something, that conversation thread goes to the top of the board, even though the post that bumped it won't appear until a moderator approves it.

What is driving the "older than Moses" threads to the top? Spam. Spambots are constantly posting to threads old and new. That is why you see old conversations moving to the top without new posts appearing. The moderator is choosing not to post the spam messages that would obnoxiously clog this board. Unfortunately, it doesn't push the old conversation back down.

If you want the conversation about this "holy grail" of a Holly artifact to keep appearing at the top? Keep posting about it. Personally, I would like to see this conversation end. Wingnut conspiracy theory posts speculating about Randy's integrity are offensive to me and I am sure many others who value the effort he and Sharon put in to keeping Bill Griggs' board alive. It is crazy to me how, after someone mentions the pipe, others suddenly believe that comment somehow wishes its sale into existence. The pipe is a family possession that has never been offered for sale. This is not a trading post or some Buddy Holly Craigslist site. The unavailability of the pipe has been established. Let the quest for this item go.
