Closing Thread

I am seeing more and more threads being closed. Some for good reasons, some without much warning or indications.

Is this the new policy?

Here's one example:

There were some heated exchanges, but no insults, no swearing etc. And not any more off topic than the first post anyways. Suddenly the thread was closed without a word from the mod who closed it.

My concern is that we know a few individuals would keep bringing up the same issues over and over again in various different threads (similar to the closed thread above); and you would get the expected response to those "issues". So we will end up having all those threads closed for exactly the same reason or under the same circumstances.

I would prefer having those "inappropriate" exchanges deleted (after warning) or moved to other places rather than closing the thread. Just my 2 cents.

It is not our policy to close threads without notice- I always post a message in each thread that I close.

Post deletions are rarely required, but I will see to it that they are done when needed to avoid pointless rambling in threads. Thanks for posting your comments in this matter!
