    Default Closing Threads to Comments

    I read a thread started in 2012 regarding stolen property where absolutely 100% wrong advice was given, across the board; it was nothing more than opinions, by absolute ignorants. Yes it's 5 years old, but it still comes up on page one in the google searches.

    Google doesn't care how old a link is, (so neither should you); its algorithm only tabulates a link's popularity. Because this link was on my first page, Google believes it's a valid AND popular link, and whike it may be populat, it's a horrible link. No accurate legal advice was given this poor woman.

    Because the advice is so incredibly wrong, (according to two judges, 1 cop AND 4 attorneys who just read it in the coffee room together and were aghast and wanted to reply), and it's still clickable, meaning that this post has been leading people astray for 5 years, this website either needs to allow threads to remain open so current and ACCURATE advice and corrections can be added throughout the years OR, the old, closed threads should be entirely deleted.

    Either leave threads open for comments, or make them "unclickabe," meaning delete them. Closing threads while still allowing them remain online is really quite foolish. Either delete them, or let people continue to comment. Some new commenters on old posts just might have actual legal degrees, and who can help.

    If you want to run a forum your way, go buy the software, get a server, start a forum and run it your way.

    If in fact there's a problem with the thread, identify the thread for us. Posting nonsensical claims about police officers and lawyers lining up to correct the thread does little more than undermine your credibilty.

    I very highly doubt people are reading it and if they take advice they get off some random legal forum with a DISCLAIMER on it that states that the people on here who respond may not be lawyers and this is not considered legal advice, that's their own fault. Perhaps people should read the disclaimer and the forum rules before they ask questions or take advice and opinions off here.

    There are actually quite a few people on here who are lawyers fyi.

    Given her dedication to posting inaccurate information about defamation, odds are this is much ado about a thread that actually contains correct information.
