TomS? How many people here remember him now?

Voted for Severian. He is most tactful and least irritating.

Severian not only bumps old threads but periodically bumps threads he created that no one cared to respond to.

Tweety is going to get my vote out the sheer glee it provides me.

Still chuckling over the:

You x? You betcha!

I swear I wish it would post strictly in that format.

"Best" sort of implies that thread resurrection is a good thing.

We can only hope the History Channel was right about the Mayans predicting the imminent end of the world, though I don't think, at this rate, Dec. 20 would be soon enough.

Done properly it can be of great value. Though I've realised through some recent comments that either some people don't get it, or the rowdy resident resurrectors aren't doing as good a job as we could be doing.

I really don't like that Severian guy, tbh. I met him IRL, quite a disagreeable and miserable young man. He needs a hobby.

Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

I had to vote for Asteriktos/Justin. He was necromancing before necromancing was cool. He was the original necromancing hipster.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Hands down Asteriktos (Justin)...I like most of the threads he resurrects and they are usually very intellectually and spiritually provoking.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
