threads that go off topic, or lose their value, or are posted just for members attention, not for comments, should, obviously be closed by a mod.
but surely threads that are only there to insult people, or are quite simply, pure spam and gibberish should not be preserved on the boards pages, but deleted.
theads like the one above, rightly closed by shigawire, should also be deleted. its currently sitting 2nd from the top in general discussion as i post, what earthly purpose is that thread doing there? furthermore, a lot of people tend to read closed threads just to see what the fuss is about and why it got closed. if a thread is there merely to insult people, and an intended victom reads it, even after its been closed, the victom may decide to post a new topic in responce, leading to more flming, and more closed topics etc.
such threads should really be deleted, not preserved for all to see.
