I feel like the "clique" feeling would be more exaggerated if new peas had no idea what we were talking about, sort of like an inside-joke that only we know. Having certain old threads archived allows new peas to catch up. I hope that makes sense.
I agree. When something from the past is mentioned, it's nice to be able to go back and read about it instead of being in the dark.
