Suggestion about threads

Certain threads go dead over time and remain unanswered. Say I come across another dead thread and find that this is the same thing I want resolved, would SF community moderators be willing to add the option for the user to REVIVE this thread and mark it the same. That way people visiting would know that they could help out this person. Just have a label by the side of the thread saying 'unanswered/ unresolved/ revived' and bring it once again to the front of the queue. I am not sure I see any drawbacks in adding this feature.

I can see one drawback, which is that certain people would likely abuse it to keep their messages on the top -- the same sorts of people who spam every board on here whenever they have a question.  There aren't that many posters like that, but there are a few, and a few could ruin it for the rest.
