I understand the reason why many threads have been closed lately, but this one left me scratching my head. Perhaps some mods should take their itchy "close thread" trigger finger and stick it somewhere else. Or maybe just delete the offending posts instead of closing the thread.
Another idea is... whoever closes a thread should insert one last post explaining why it was closed. That seems reasonable, AND it would help others learn what not to do in the future.
Any other ideas?
