    Nope. Deleting a thread removes it from view, so only moderators and administrators can see it. Closing a thread simply means people can no longer post in it ;)

    I wish people would not remove the asking price of a firearm when they close a thread. I think it gives us a good idea of actual firearm values. I know a lot of guns sell for less than the asking price, but it would give people a good place to start, by checking past threads of sold guns. Deleting an add would remove some of the 'Recycled Gun Syndrome' I see a lot of guns making small circles. I am sure a few people think that closed threads, leave too may clues to were the guns went.
