Thread Closure Bug

I've recently noticed that after writing posts which are helpful, well formulated, in excellent English and very relevant to the thread subject, when I hit my "Post Reply" button I regularly receive the message "Thread Closed"
Can a moderator please look into this.

Re: Thread Closure Bug

Was the thread actually closed, or do you get the message despite it still being open?

Re: Thread Closure Bug

Still open? No such luck. It takes me too long to reply and then correct all the errors. It was just Shut. Closed. Locked. A Moderator thought everyone had already had enough fun. I hadn't.

Re: Thread Closure Bug

Happened to me a few times. I make it a policy never to write anything erudite in a thread that has gone beyond 3 pages.

Karma for all the times you closed threads while normal users where writing, perhaps?

Guilty as charged. But I do wonder how you managed to get hold of my EF Criminal Record. Is "Pewpewpew" a duplicate account? You joined EF in 2016. My crimes are in the dim and distant past. I gave up Moderator Rights in Spring 2012! I served my time. I learned my lesson. I'm going straight now. I promise.

Far be it for me to know people that have told me the history of EF? I mean whoever socializes with other effers amirite?

LOL, that just happened to me. It's a little like you think about something and when you want to answer .... everybody's gone home.

The lesson to learn is don't think before you talk?

Re: Thread Closure Bug

I PM'd someone today, and they didn't receive it.
Does EF still exist - and would they tell us if it didn't?
