EDITOR ? Why do some topics get closed ?

Original post made by bru, Crescent Park, on Sep 8, 2010

I was just looking through some of these topics, and reading through, and then get to the bottom only to notice that the topic has been closed for comments, while some topics much older are still open?

Why does PAOnline close some topics, and is there a reason or criterion for these topics to be closed?

Also ... again I would like to suggest that the middle column in these web pages be limited to 70-80 characters so they can be comfortably read by people without 20-20 vision on screens that are medium to small size. This is a really critical suggestion, especially if you consider that in the future more and more readers will be reading on devices like iPods, iPads, netbooks, phones, etc, and the screens are so small that it becomes either impossible to see the type or if the type is large enough the horizontal scrolling on each line makes it impossible to read. Please consider this.

Hot topics which get the blood flowing are often closed. Topics where there is rampant slander are also closed.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
