    I'm not trying to question moderation or anything, but I read somewhere that the poster is meant to get a PM explaining why their thread got closed?

    Anyway, I was just a bit surprised, is all.

    I don't know, but I do know you can't post that question, because whether you intend it to or not, it essentially reopens the topic for discussion, which is strictly against the rules. You can PM a mod if you want to know why, but posting this question publicly is a no no.

    Oh, okay. It wasn't much of a topic for discussion anyway. It was one of those things that couldn't really go anywhere as far as discussion is concerned. [​IMG]

    Okay. I'll leave it then, I'm just very curious.
