That's good idea, instead of displaying plain "Not open for further replies" we should modify it to include a link to start a new thread?

For example, TripAdvisor has the following message: "This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity. We hope you'll join the conversation by posting to an open topic or starting a new one". That sounds nicer?

I like old threads as I like all the information in one place.
