When a mod closes a thread due to the topic already being discussed, could they please include a link to the "already running" thread? I'm often finding it hard to track down the threads they are referring to when I want to read or contribute to them. Sometimes the "already running" thread is in a completely different sub forum.
And before you say "use the search function", sorry, but like on most forums the search function sucks.

It seems to depend on which moderator does the closing.

Some of them seem to do it for the good of the forum and other seem to feel like they are exacting a vengeance.

If I can add a real-world example of why I strongly agree: the most recent thread about Joe Biden saying something about people not caring about their rights was shut down with no link or explanation of where it was already running. Sure, there was a link in the OP, but all it leads to is a flash video. I'm on an iPad. No flash. So essentially, I have nothing. If this story is already running somewhere, I assume there's some discussion I can read, or maybe a source with more info, possibly even a non-flash video. But the way I browse here, I haven't run across where this is running, and a link would be a nice courtesy. I've moderated some forums, and I know it can be tough, and I commend the mods here, but as a general suggestion, I'd say this one is very reasonable.

Re: "Already running"
We get any more Biden threads and were going to need a new sub-forum for them all...

We could make them a "Sticky" like the Bathroom thread!
