    Default Closing vs Deletion

    Is it possible to delete the duplicate threads rather than just closing them??

    Looks like a cluttered mess with a load of "closed" threads...
    Granted, yes - this might just cause more "My Thread Got Deleted, I Need A New Kotex" pissy threads... I don't know, just a thought...

    free post?



    now voivod, you know this is going bye- bye
    brett and the mods will probably address this in their own way
    not with another open thread so people can post useless responses
    uh..er.... anyway

    free post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Generally speaking, we prefer to leave em closed in the vain hope people might catch on to WHY we're closing these things.

    I prefer the merge function over the close... if they have to work to find thier thread/post they tend to learn quicker.

    Isn't "j/k seriously" an oxymoron ?
