    Closing vs Moving Threads

    Read a couple of threads this morning that abruptly ended as "Closed". It appeared evident to me the reason for closing was due to the thread having been started in the wrong sub-topic area. If these threads had been allowed to run their natural course, potential information of value could be gleaned from them.

    Why not simply move the thread to what you consider a more appropriate location as opposed to just shutting it down? Kind of defeats the purpose of a forum imo. If it then appears to become a problem from an individual member, deal with the member in lieu of depriving the community of a meaningful exchange of thoughts and ideas.

    Thanks

    You want mom to pick up your dirty socks, too? Different thread topics are a standard across every forum on the planet, IMO the mods shouldn't have to play maid to the lazy masses, they do enough for nothing as is. If the subject is important enough to discuss than it is important enough to put in the correct place.
    E pluribus unum

    Many could say the same to yourself based on your initial, arguably asinine, comment/question and your response.

    One might say: An attitude of expectation is just as bad as one of abrasion.

    To Clarify: ToR Might have been rhetorical and sarcastic; but his point has a lot more validity than attitude.

    Generally speaking when someone posts in the wrong area, it will be moved or it will get closed and there will be a link posted to the correct location.

    It becomes a little tiresome when people keep doing it over and over. Especially when someone has been here a while.

    Thank you. Both a reasonable and civil response. I agree, if not a newbie, not much of an excuse.
