Why the desire to close active threads?

One thing I've noticed in this forum is mods/admins are zealous to close threads. I honestly think that any possible excuse an admin can find, even if they are not within the rules, will result in thread closure.

Case in point: The 'You can never be too careful' thread about the Alec Baldwin shooting that was closed because

"Agreed that at this point, we're merely speculating. This thread has grown long in its tooth, so we're closing it."

What forum rule was violated that would cause this discussion to be closed?

IMO, this is a pattern. If a discussion in general or law surpasses a handful of pages, or continues over a certain period of time then the door is slammed.

OTOH, discsussions around specific firearms can last for pages or months with no action.
