To whom it may concern,

Can we have this thread reopened please?

I know it certainly has the potential to be closed in the future, though thus far it has not really demonstrated its worthiness or lack thereof to be shut down.

It really could be an extremely important topic, as there may in reality be quite a strong chance that Al Gore ends up becoming the next U.S. vice president.

Thanks for your time.

Thread was closed because of a request by the OP.

The OP does not own the thread, he only started it.

This would be something decided by the FC, but I feel he does "own" the thread if he started it. I wouldn't want to insult him by reopening it.

No way would he feel insulted, if he doesn't want to participate all he has to do is look the other way.

He asked me to close it because he felt the thread wasn't what he wanted it to be (or it had been solved), I closed it for him because OP's don't have the ability to close their own threads.

I have (before being modified) requested threads of mine to be closed if they were going in a direction that I didn't think was good, and the staff fulfilled my request. I would have been insulted if they felt my opinion on my thread wasn't worth anything.

The OP of that thread said in the PM if anyone wishes to continue the discussion, they could start a thread on it themselves.

If he wanted to look the other way, he would have done so.

I support LaRoza with this. The Thread starter can request a thread to be closed.

You could always ask the OP to allow it to be reopened.

I expect the subject has a chance of popping up again in the coming months, time will tell?
