    Why was the thread ub3r posted about favorite numbers closed?

    Why was that thread closed?

    Seems like there are quite a few threads closed around here lately for ridiculous reasons

    Well I didn't close it, but how does a thread like that help the general community? Are you going to remember tomorrow what someone's favourite number was?

    A lot of the offers in the ad forums are ridiculous posts but they aren't closed simply for that reason. Who's to say what's ridiculous? Moreover, when did a ridiculous post become a rule violating post? It seems we have a lot of other threads popping up that do violate the rules that should be taken care of before those that someone simply views as ridiculous.

    Please give me a break.

    Why is posting about your favorite number a "ridiculous post"? I did not think that was a ridiculous post whatsoever. That is a lounge forum afterall. There are all sorts of silly posts in there.

    hmmmm

    The difference is that most members don't post a dozen rediculous threads in a day.

    Some of those posts are just for fun....I wonder about some people's sense of humour though...

    For the same reason this thread has just been closed.

    I guess the percentage of pointless threads must be on the rise then?
