Seems odd that it was closed. There were a number of people that seemed offended by the thread, but that’s never been a reason for a thread to be closed. As far as I know, the Clintons aren’t posters here, and they are public figures.
The admin that closed it, seem to question the location of such a thread and just closed it. It’s location (IMHO) seemed appropriate to me as the OP was seeking opinions. At worst it could have been shuffled off to the Pit, but it seemed fine where it was, and no need to be closed. But what the hell, I’m not an admin, so just looking for clarification.
