This is solvable technologically, why make it something that people can do wrong? Threads could automatically be marked "archived" after 30 days of no activity, and the thread is locked.
Why not use tech to guide people to correct behavior, when possible.

Chapter IX - Vigilantism
Performing a moderators job or impersonating a moderator by telling someone they have done something wrong or against the rules.
This is exactly what's being defined by Dark0ne as "not allowed". Especially if one tries to do it "in public" by replying to someone else's post. The chances of creating more problems (for yourself and others) far outweigh any possible benefits.
