Threads are closed when they're offensive etc. Look into forum rules. BTW I guess it was deleted, because I can't find it.

I think yadavankur is talking about http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=38299. I reopend the thread as g0dzuki99 did nothing at all wrong. I am guessing it was closed to stop the abusive posts, but I didn't close it so I may be wrong.

I changed the thread title and closed it. First a thread title like that only would cause problems and wasn't what his problem was about and then closed it to stop any abusive posts at the time.

yadavankur - please let the mods handle the offensive stuff. if you see any threads or anything else you don't think is appropriate, please report it instead of posting it. reposting it is essentially repeating it, and it just gives the mods more to re-edit... we do appreciate the vigilance tho.
