Why are threads closed?

What is the policy when deciding to close a thread? Closing duplicate threads is obvious. But why was the thread about the Harry Potter books closed?

And can moderators that participate in the thread close it? I think they should not be able to do it but that maybe is the policy.

One of the threads was closed becuase it was a duplicate. The other should still be open.

One of the main reasons is when adults begin to behave badly, resulting in some of the issues listed below:

1) Name-calling that begins to spread like a cancer and continues to deteriorate the overall health of the thread vis-a-vis the topic under discussion.

2) Offensive language, such that (like #1), it begins to spread.

3) Attitudinal issues that create ill-feelings in the rest of the community.

The case that got me wondering was I realize now a moderator posting in a closed thread. That happens a lot so I really think the user interface need a warning so that not happens.

I entirely agree. I didn't notice that the thread was closed when I posted to it. I think this is on Alex's "to do" list - it's been requested by us mods several times!

Your first post was before the thread was closed. Only your second was posted after.

this is a "Feature" of VB

Quick and Dirty way to do this is make the thread closed button alot larger and red.

I am sure there is an addon that Fixes or more than likely warns said Mod or admin about this. but i never found that it warranted me to look for it on any of my forums. there is also more than likely a way to disable posting in closed topics in the pages and pages(and more pages!) of adminCP.
