The rude part was not telling me why it was closed in the first place or you could have sent a PM to me explaining why it was closed. I know how these forums work, I am a moderator on a forum site. I would like my thread reopened because I would like other responses as I appreciate all responses.
Laziness on your part (finding it "easier" to post a new thread) does not necessarily constitute lack of interest or information on ours.
Here are examples of what WOULD have been rude:
- Not answering your question
- Deleting your thread
- ONLY telling you to search...not adding that to the provided answer
Meanwhile, your question was answered, politely.
Threads are often closed because it's better to keep original threads open in many cases so that THEY may be added to. That way, when other new users come here, and learn how to use the search button, they can find the most comprehensive threads, chock-full of the information they need. This way, they don't have to sift through a ton of scattered threads with random posts from people uninterested in looking the information up for themselves.
While we're on the subject of rudeness, consider that you had the option to send your very OWN PM to a mod requesting clarity. But no. Instead, you decided to blast anyone involved to anyone that would listen.
If I were you, I wouldn't expect much civility from this community if you're going to be so quick on the trigger to flame. There are a lot of excellent members on here that don't need to always be subjected to fly-by-night n00bs.
If you'd like to see "other responses", follow the advice other members have given you, and read threads other than your own. The mod team, as well as many of the members here, will stand behind NJBlackberry. He did nothing out of disrespect, and in fact, was quite courteous to you considering how often your question has been asked and answered.
I wouldn't, however, expect to see your thread re-opened.
