babble policy - closing threads policy
to quote the site
"The moderators of this board routinely close threads for the following reasons:
*The thread duplicates topics that are already active;
* The thread's length has become cumbersome (usually around 100 posts)
* The thread has become off-topic, abusive, or argumentative to the point that civil discussion cannot be resumed;
* The thread's subject matter explicitly targets and/or attacks another participant on babble.
A thread may be moved by the moderators from one forum to another that is more appropriate for the subject matter.
We reserve the right to revise this policy at any time in the future. Participants of this discussion board will be notified when changes occur."
interesting observation: some threads are closed with the moderator making a comment such as 'closed for length'.. others it is obvious a moderator is unhappy with the dynamic on some level and simply say 'this thread is over'.... i'm sure it's difficult for moderators to be completely detached from these threads as they are people with thoughts on the subject matter as well... what i find interesting is the degree of detachment or not that i sense when a thread is closed...
