Why is it, that a moderator can post an opinion or thought and then close a thread? I understand the rules, so don't post them for me to read.. but it use to be that a warning was always given and a set number of hours where allowed before the thread was closed. Of course, I have seen threads closed because of simple reasons, a duplicate thread, or one that has more name calling in it that real substance, but here lately it has happened many times that a moderator will close a thread after they have voiced their opinion or have closed it without warning of any kind. Has the rules changed? Does the Moderator always get the last word? Why is there a need to post and close all within a span of 1 or 2 minutes? Can any of the Moderators or Administrators explain this policy and how it works?
