Why does a new particular forum thread have red background?
Danger? Embedded malicious link?
I'm not going near it.
It's in the unanswered section titled "Google Chrome or Firefox"
Im gonna GUESS that its a new feature that highlights the newest "unanswered post" or its just a bug in styling
well my theory is proved wrong. There are newer unanswered now.
It is "closed to reply" - so thats my guess on the red now
So now we can guess on why its closed!
The new user did post a bunch of questions in a row - but there are no links and the posts seem genuine.
New automated anti-spam feature in action?
Well , I am still very curious!
The user had posted a question about backlinks in a previous post - got some feedback relating to firefox plugins and then opened a poll style (as you should when a question is answered) post asking about chrome vs. firefox.
I dont see how an actual person would deem that unacceptable and close it .. especially considering where the bar is here
..looking like an automated response to me! they have been talking about implementing stuff for a while - guess will see tonight when the PLR and chinese wholesale websites start spamming
Relache has pointed out the 'red" closed is an old feature.
Im still prattling because, i dont see a rational reason for the close, so wondering if that points to some new forum filters.
We did just have a bunch of new features roll out!

I am all for enjoying a good debate but why take it so far? Is it for fun, boredom, or what? Look at almost any religion forum anywhere and it is the same thing. Why?
