If I am not very much mistaken, then the links to the closed topics appeared to be grey earlier.

Could you please do that again?

I really enjoy reading closed threads

Why do you enjoy reading closed threads? Have you read the 5 or so closed 1 = 0.999.... threads?

No. I enjoy reading the ones with controversies and fights.

I do too, but the fighters have left the forum. I would love to close more threads.

Besides the best fight threads have been deleted.

Why did you have to delete them?

That is the document I was talking about

They were particularly ugly. It is not good for the members to see squabbling. This is supposed to be a pleasant place. Also sometimes the combatants removed them.

They could occasionally see them. Besides it reveals how childish/revengeful people can be

That is true but what would anyone gain in seeing someone at their worst?

It's fun. I have read se7en's threads and GIB's threads which are quite fun to read.

Hmmm, they were not fun for me to read or respond to, I can tell you that.

Because he was barred at least 10 times before he chose the name GiB.

Yes, he has tried that at least 15 times after being barred as GiB. He spends a lot of time trying to get passed the defenses. It is time wasted.

He does lurk here so I do not wish to smarten him up on how he is being detected. Let's just say he has no chance.

His of course. He should use his time better by improving his math.

That is his problem. He is a self proclaimed genius.

self proclaimed? Do you refuse to call him a genius?
