I think you ought to look at the Newbie forum though. This place gets so many stupid posts that shouldn't be here. We don't have to close them, but we choose to. There are many people who make one post, it gets closed, and we never see them again. Think of it as a milder Darwin Award. However the Newbie section has many appropriate posts, and the vast majority of them are open. In fact, I counted two posts in the list that showed up I believe. So posts that belong stay open. Those that don't get closed. I've only been closing so many topics because unreal's been away, and I feel it's my duty to pick up his slack.
