Curious about closing threads


Give me a museum and I'll fill it. (Picasso) Give me a forum ...

I was involved in a couple of threads earlier today that got closed. While I agree there were some snotty remarks in them, they didn't really seem that bad to me. Certainly not as bad as some that were allowed to die a natural death. I could understand maybe moving them from where they were (one in FIRE and Money, not sure about the other) to Soapbox, but instead they were closed.

Is there a line in the sand or some sort of subjective determination for these things, or is it just a matter of one of the moderators getting annoyed? And I'm not putting y'all down, mods, I appreciate the efforts you put in. :angel: I'm just trying to understand so I don't step on anyone's toes. I'd appreciate it if anybody would explain. Thanks.

That was an excellent explanation. Thanks very much.

I never saw these rules before. I read the FAQ when I joined, but didn't see them. I just found them at the bottom of the page. I don't think I ever paged all the way down before.

Anyway, thanks again. I will endevour to live within the rules from this point forward. I have a personal issue with sarcasm, but I'll try to reign it in. :angel:
