How come if an OP requests a thread closed, it usually is?
Usually it's after someone asks for advice and doesn't like the advice given
Surely if other people have taken the time & effort to respond then the thread should be left open?
A bit like the thread below, where someone is obviously trying to scam or at the very least ignoring their buyers, yet a mod locks the thread and doesn't allow anyone to post any updates. It's obvious the deal isn't complete so why close the thread just because the OP asks?
