    Why has this thread been closed?

    https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/t...e-Why-there-is

    There is probably nothing else to say here, but I see no reason for it to be closed. Why was this done?

    I wondered the same thing. I'm reopening it.

    It was probably the person who posted the question. People do that sometimes when they think it has been answered. We didn't. If they keep closing threads, I will ask them not to do so.

    I didn't even realise we could close our own threads. This doesn't seem to me to be a good idea.

    Most don't close them and we have limited powers of deletion (short time and no answers). Closed threads can be re-opened without losing anything.
