I Am Curious (Grey)

When posts are "bad" on Meta or AskMeta -- doubles, or inappropriate, or whatever -- they're deleted. When posts are "bad" here on MetaTalk -- like, questions that belong elsewhere, inappropriate posts like "can someone do a FPP about XYZ," and the like, they're closed instead of being deleted. My OCD is having trouble with this. So, why? And what happens to bad posts on other parts of the site, like Jobs, Projects and Music?

Ding, Threads are Done

Is there a way to be alerted whenever a thread on the blue closes? Some sort of alert system? A site somebody else has already set up? I'm just wondering if there's some preexisting way someone's already done this.

Less mouse for your (five) buck(s)

Pony Request: Being able to close the in-site Youtube viewer with the escape key would be flipping sweet. [more inside]

30 days isn't always 1 month

Account Closing Protocol

What would be the reason someone would want to close their account? If someone didn't want to "belong" to this "community", wouldn't someone just quit posting to the site, and reading it? And what of the posts someone has previously posted? Would a request to delete all of someone's own posts be complied with? [more inside]

Please close this argument

Can we please shut the comments on the Ted Haggard thread? It's turned into the same argument repeated over and over again.

AskMe commenting should always be open

Why do Ask Me threads bother to close after 30 days? Wouldn't it be useful to go back and be able to add answers anytime?

Can we close bad AskMe threads that take off?

I can recall a few times in recent history where a thread that failed to meet the guidelines of AskMetafilter stayed around for a while because no one happened to be around to nip it in the bud -- and then the thread accumulated so many interesting answers that people had gotten attached to it and Matt was reluctant to delete it. I sympathize with this reluctance but also feel that appropriate deletions are good for preventing the mission of AskMe from drifting too far afield. Would the ability to close AskMe threads be a good compromise solution for these cases?

I got a pony

A baby eohippus, neatly saddled with a bar napkin inscribed with my name, just pranced by on the thinnest of air and winked at me, whereupon I had a pony shot in celebration.
