When and why do topics get closed for further discussion?
Hi Michael, topics get closed for further discussion when our moderators feel that further discussion would likely be no longer relevant or appropriate. I refer you to the Forum guidelines, in particular that: “we encourage constructive discussion about this information and so reserve the right to moderate or decline posts that we feel are not relevant or inappropriate. In particular, with the subject of the human condition being so confronting, malice can easily occur, and where comments are deemed to be motivated not by objectivity but by malice, they will be declined. It has to be appreciated that the possibility of malice toward this subject matter is very real, and we have a responsibility to manage that as best we can.”
