Granted, it was about justifying pedophilia, but if one reads your mod post upon closing it, it looks like you did so because one poster got warned. Which would seem like a bad reason to close a thread. Did you close it because of the topic and/or the the guy who resurrected it as a Zombie? I didn’t see any warnings given to him, and he wasn’t banned, so I assume not.
Just to be extremely clear: I’m not arguing that the thread should have been left open. I just don’t think there was anywhere near a good explanation as to why it was closed.
