    Confused, buffaloed, wondering.... Why was this thread closed? LINK to mystery closure.

    Not contentious nor political. It's not complimentary of Black Frigate, but surely that's no reason to shut down a thread - with no explanation. Could we please understand? Or maybe it was simply closed in error. (?)

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Probably because it was a giveaway and the gift was given.

    I was wondering that myself, but then remembered the "THOU SHALT NOT QUESTION THE MODS!!" stuff. So I went with, "Eh, screw it. Not worth it.".

    A man who serves his country is a patriot. A man who serves his government is an employee. The two are not always the same thing.

    This is what I was thinking. The giveaway was spoken for 5 days ago. I thought that the mods just got around to closing it down.

    Or possibly any offending post was also removed.

    Possibly, but removing an offending post from a thread that's active doesn't require closing in every case I can think of.

    For every post sent on Pipe and Tobacco Ad sections, Al gets an RSS feed. That means every single time someone posts 'nice pipe' under a pipe ad, Al receives an email. Those sections are not for discussion but sale only. Once the deal is done, the thread can be closed or deleted by a mod. I will reopen it and move to Tobacco Discussion.

    By the way, I am going to close this one. It is not allowed to discuss an action of a mod in public. Next time you have a question, feel free to PM.
