I really don’t care about the issue at stake in those threads, and I don’t see the point of the OP. At all. Really.
Why the rush to close the thread? I appreciate the idea of brevity being a positive value, but saying “question answered” when there wasn’t even an intelligent question is a strange thing to do.
We recently had a massive pitting of the administration, this usually leaves the pendulum ready to swing back. The OP set himself up for a fun pile on, if the thread generated any level of interest, which was doubtful. This was you chance to PALATR, yet there it went.
Insta-locking threads with the excuse of asked and answered does little to garner the respect of your fan base. Step to them, state your point and let it sink. You have nothing to lose (and a couple CPMs to win).
Just my two cents.
