Ironic that there are more closed threads here in Open Government than other forums?

    Do discussions about SciForums policy need to be carried out indefinitely? Should threads in this forum be left open long after the relevant questions have been addressed?

    Yes, unless there is a compelling reason to close them, like public safety or legal concerns, or invasion of personal privacy.

    It's simple Hil... Zap.

    A question gets asked, it has a response given and if left open it gets defecated on by a number of the more primitive members. So the thread gets locked. Then for some reason the initial poster takes it into their head that it's locked because we don't want to discuss; because we don't see their view; or that we just don't like them and this spirals into a paranoia trip for them.

    So when they reiterate the same question (Just like you have with this post since you've posted the same query time and time again) We lock it, in honesty you should look to the locked threads to derive an answer, as most of the time they contain the answers to the questions that keep re-emerging.
