I'm lost as to why a thread was closed

Concerning the “SBMB’ers!!! Read here and help save a human life!” thread closed this morning by TVeblen, what exactly are the rules concerning solicitation?

Whatever you have is appreciated.

Going to the other extreme, do you think if she’d put “Geordies” or “Cockneys” into room 101 there’d be an outcry at all?

And now, I’m even more confused.

Sorry! Totally wrong thread! :o

The relevant thread:

Thanks for the laugh, IJ/ I spent quite a while trying to figure out what you meant by that comment. :slight_smile:

Thanx. It was in reply to a thread, actually on another board, about Anne Robinson. I don’t how I managed to post it here!

Which board, IJGrieve?

Dotmusic forums–a British music discussion board.

It was closed because it was an online petition drive.

We consider petitions to fall either under our commercial solicitation ban or our anti-spam rules, depending on the plea.

FWIW, most online petitions turn out to be hoaxes. Well intentioned hoaxes, but hoaxes just the same.

Hope this clears it up for you.

That it does!

Lock this one down, would ya?
