    Why? Simple because you can't.

    Why are threads closed? Multiple reasons (not getting anywhere, user request, drama, old threads, just because) ultimately WE decide which thread to close and which not to and only WE as staff can post in a closed thread.

    I would say yes if it is a old closed thread, however if it is something that was closed at the OP's request or closed because of the drama, that thread will be immediately deleted and warning/infraction could ensue.

    Well yeah, obviously I was thinking about the former, NOT the latter. -Who needs the drama...?

    Which is precisely why the threads are closed. Because we do not want anyone else to reply. Simple enough.

    Its statements like this from forum mods that have killed fourms, I donít know u but that kind of statement just come across as u think ur better than other people here.

    A simple we closed it because it was getting disrespectful or against forum rules. Or the op requested it. That would be a statement that had zero prejudice in it.

    If a person states that they just wanted to chime in with info etc on a closed thread doesnít mean they are going to abuse the forum rules.
