Thread closings

While contemplating becoming a paid subscriber, I've noted an alarming trend of closings of seemingly innocuous threads for no more reason than the arbitrary and capricious tastes of a certain, rather immoderate, moderator. Further, this person feels compelled to interject his own terse and sometimes caustic opinions of posts into threads, exhibiting the very kind of behavior he professes to abhor. Then he spouts a pompous judgment and closes the threads. I see no point in paying for this sort of thing, when this sort of unproffesional administration is available for free, on so many other sites.
