Thread closeure

New to this site and been browsing encountered a few closed threads, some Obama this and Trump that, which I understand is totally political.

But was shocked to see a property/defense thread closed. Without a single mention of politics.

Welcome to TFL, Bluecthomas.

I'm not sure which thread you're referring to, but threads get closed for a variety of reasons. Maybe a thread is too political, or maybe someone resurrected a long-dead thread that the mods feel is best to left die, or maybe there's just too much bickering going on in a thread. There's usually a closure note by the mod who closed it, though.

That's odd. . .

There must have been a reason for that.

Can you post the link so I can see it? There are a lot of threads like that. . .

In law and civil rights, "how to handle idiots on your property?".

There was some "you wrong" comments. A staff member had commented. But no note on closure.

I wanted to ask if the op had followed up with a confirmation of the "visitors" claimed reason.
Whole thing sounded fishy. If you got good explanation, you don't run off.

Wife going off alone, gun in hand, I agree those were errors in judgement. Holstered and Kipling's "hand held low" would of been my approach.

I could go on. But this probably not the place for that...

Op of that thread was boogersnot or something like that.

But no note on closure.
Are you sure there was no note on closure, or perhaps you didn't get to the 2nd page.

There was a very clear closing post by a moderator of that forum (post #27 in the thread):

Yes we can. I've done just that several hundred times.

I've also just closed threads, like I did there, with the intent of it being instructive in nature. I laid out the reasoning of why that thread didn't belong in L&CR, and where it could have gone.

Considering the subject matter, the way it was presented by the OP, the responses that were made, I honestly didn't feel like saddling other mods with it.

Agree or disagree, but those were my thoughts. The OP could have PM'd me for a further explanation or reconsideration. He didn't.
