How can a thread be closed unless there's been a few nasty postings to prompt it?

I thought discussions on a discussion forum were err....meant to be discussions.

It just seems so TA at the moment, where anyone can press the appropriate button, for whatever reason, and zap.....!

C'est la vie!

This happens many many times on Tripadvisor not just the Icmeler forum, Moderators decide when to close topics as they have the power to do so according to moderation policies.

Yep, I know. Though sometimes some people press the Report button because someone has disagreed with their own polarized views.

It happened a lot during the Arab Spring when a lot of members on the Tunisia or Sharm forums were having a go at TC, Thomsons or the FCO.

Yes but member's who use (Report inappropriate content) can only remove single post's even this is petty as all they do is get friends to do as they do and then it's zapped, Just another poor Ta useless tool.

Lancaster Lad,I find the Tunisia forum most friendly these days and not many posts get removed but that is not the case on the Turkish ones!

It has happened on the Calis forum for no reason and apparently its happening here too!
