why was TE's thread closed? I have not noticed a change in moderation, but closing the thread is suspicious. I do believe that it is important to remember that if we wanted to only read quotable sources we all would just watch the news. The excitement of rumors is most of the draw to internet sites. I know that I get in conversations with colleagues every day that are based solely on rumors. Yes, the last month might have required stricter moderation, but let us not forget why many of us are here in the first place.
