I just noticed something weird with a closed thread. Normally, when a thread is closed, there is a note put in by the system as to who closed it and when (as is done in the 2nd link below). In the first link, it looks like that is not annotated. I think this is the first time I have seen that happen. May be nothing, but I thought I might mention it in case there is a problem or something with the system software. No complaints or anything - just struck me as odd.
I closed that thread. It did annotate but I deleted that annotation. We do that sometimes when we make a decision together to close a thread, or as in this case a group of threads. It prevents the pudding stirrers from voicing objections at one mod when we collectively decided to take action.
