For the admins:
SemiExpert, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons: Your user account has less than 50 posts. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system? If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
The member that started the thread you are complaining about doesn't seem to have a problem with it being closed. He did the correct thing and asked where the best place to discuss the decision was. I answered his question in this post. I'd suggest you use the same links and discuss the decision with the people that made it.
That thread and the other one will remain closed.
Just as an aside the original thread was marked solved by the original poster.
