It's not a dead thread if there are people posting to it.
2. Stopping me from looking at 'new posts' to old threads so saving me time
See above.
3. Lizard responded to a new post to an old thread that is is better to create a new thread than post to an old one.
I think it is better to create a new thread if you are discussing a new topic, but if you are continuing the old one, I don't see the advantage. New threads can be hijacked just like old, unlocked ones.
4. It's good practice to do so.
I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong :-)
