Thread Name: BS: Is closing threads censorship?
Subject: RE: BS: Is closing threads censorship?
It is certainly censorship when the thread's closure prevents further contributions - except for some who insist on having the last word.

Actually those posts were deleted for precisely that reason. The judgement was made by the powers that be that they should be put back in. Not much I can do about that.

If you have good reason to reopen a closed thread, contact me by e-mail or personal message, and I'll most probably honor your request.

As you know - I did have a good reason - I did PM you - and you did not honour my request. I wll leave you to explain to our forum what your thoughts were on my request.

But is this not backwards? Shouldn't YOU have to find a good reason to close a thread rather than posters having to find a reason that you then judge good enough to re-open it? Posters do not (currently) have to find a good reason to start a thread - why should they be expected to have to find a good reason for you to re-open it.
