This thread was closed … I guess because the OP asked it to be? It couldn’t simply be because a thread named about being 1/6 can only be posted to on 1/6. That’s just inherently silly, and besides, the 2020 election day thread is still open.
The OP shouldn’t be able to ask a thread that has hundreds of participants to close just because he decides the discussion is over. His reasoning for wanting it to somehow become a time capsule or something and only contain commentary for that day doesn’t really make sense, it’s not like we lose any of the previous posts if we keep posting on that thread.
We had a contained, focused discussion on a significant event that would naturally have weeks more discussion on the topic, but instead of having it all focused in one place, now it’s scattered around a dozen threads instead. That’s just annoying. It breaks the thread of conversation and scatters the participants around for no reason. It also makes it harder to track for a single person in the future looking to follow the topic - they may not know which threads they have to go to in order to keep up with the discussion after that one closed.
The 2020 election day thread is still open, why does the 1/6 thread have to be closed? This is just pointless moderating leading to a scattered discussion for no reason.
