In fact the abouve thread did not discuss any thing out of the topic nor did it use abusive languages. The other thing that bothers is that its is being closed without a valid post on why it was being closed.
There are number of things one need to notice while closing the thread in the middle of the discussion:
1. There would arise multiple thread topics arise on the same issue.
2. The continuity on the discussions gets lost
3. That shows that some one who doen't have the interest on the thread, abuses his/her privileges.
4. IT IS SAD TO KNOW THAT IT HAD BEEN CLOSED "NOT BY THE OWNER"!!, AND THERE ARE NO POSTING ON WHY IT WAS CLOSED!!! This just puts off an individual to actively participate on this news group (My Personal point of view)
I hope that others would also pass that opinions on this, issue and the personel who ever was incharge of monitoring this site would also pass their comments or thoughts on this issue.
