To ask mumsnet to remove closed posts, so I don't end up reading a million pages and getting excited to post!

I was really enjoying that post... The one that got closed.. You know the one.

I read 10 pages then went to post and found it closed.

V annoying.

So ....

I don't understand what you mean by closed posts and I don't know which thread you mean.

However, I have my settings so that I read one continuous thread, rather than lots of pages.

Closed? I'm not sure what you mean.

10 pages, 100 posts a page, so 1000 posts. The maximum size for a thread.

How pesky that MN threads have a maximum size.

If people are still talking about the topic a 'part 2' thread will appear (ideally with same OP). Some discussions run to tens of threads

There was a post that was discussing the lazy tattooed benefit claimant ... I went to post and it said the thread was closed! This has happened a few times...

Do you mean deleted?

WorraLiberty Fri 10-Mar-17 19:33:02

Oh right.

That's because for some reason MN has a 1000 post limit on each thread. I think it might be something to do with ancient servers.

Closed (not deleted) as it reached 1000 posts

I wish zombie threads had a warning at the beginning. Just a Z would be fine.

That thread needed to fill as there was some terrible victim blaming on it

I thought everyone was just taking the piss out of the OP

PortiaCastis Fri 10-Mar-17 21:08:38

Well yes the piss was taken but the thread somehow moved on to DV and one poster kept victim blaming and being really nasty
