Does Wikipedia Review have a policy (or guideline) regarding reviving ancient threads? (I realize there are no rules regarding being off-topic.)

No, not an outright rule, but this is mostly because it is fun to say "thread necromancy" in the course of discouraging the practice.

Have another whack, Beady.

Back to the topic though: did anyone actually buy Jimbo's dirty clothes? I've never understood that part of the story (which I was reminded of in a post on another topic), but then I've never understood ebay in general. ermm.gif

I don't think Rachel was actually trying to sell them. She was merely ensuring that the story would be even more lurid so would get even more publicity and embarrass Jimbo yet further. She's a good enough journalist to know what amuses other journalists.
