Thank you.

As the original poster, you can close it yourself.

At the bottom of the page, click "Show Moderator Tools". Then click "Topic Moderation" and then "Close Topic">

Also note that nowhere in the official format of this (and most other) forums does the word "thread" show up. The word is "topic". Same number of letters, so it's no more difficult to type the real term rather than a phony nickname with some illusionary cachet because borrowed from programming.

Either I'm too dumb to find it, or I'm not special enough to have it.

I thought I did write topic, sorry.

I doubt it's either. It's not really prominent. There's a "gear" symbol, and the words "Show Moderator Tools" in the center of the page almost to the bottom.

You did.

It's just a pet peeve of mine, and I used your post to launch into a diatribe against those who didn't know.

Hmmm...I participate on about a dozen forums, and your comment prompted me to check them out. It seems the ones that use phpBB call them "topics", but the others call them "threads".

If you peruse the biggest online discussions forums, you'll find that many call their discussions "threads". Others call them "articles" or "topics". But there's no universal agreement, and it seems perfectly reasonable for someone to refer to a discussion as a "thread" without fear of correction.

I don't think I've ever even heard about this particular pet peeve before this.

Well, that's an eclectic collection. Someday, some psychologist may write an interesting article on what our choice and level of participation on different forums mean. Mines a little different....
