What is the difference between a closed thread and a banished thread? Does it depend on a mod's mood? Does one have more honor/shame than another? Are banished threads extreme bad examples to all, like a head on a stake?
I also like it this way...the few times I manage to actually find my way to the front page, it's a handy tool, but for the most part, to find out what's most recent, I have the Threads updated in the past 24 hours (I think thats what it's called)
