Thread Name: BS: Is closing threads censorship?
Subject: RE: BS: Is closing threads censorship?
There's an old thread that has just been resurrected on the subject of "What is the worst song you ever heard?"

In there, there are 31 links to other threads with similar titles. Seven of these have been closed, although there seems to be nothing controversial about them. Some may have been closed because they were getting too long, in the days before you could look at just the last 50 posts, but others were closed after only a few days worth of posts. Other, longer, threads remain open

Why are some closed and others left open when the content seems so similar?
