    Got this message when I tried to post a comment on an older front page news story:
    Didn't know they closed automatically - also didn't know it would affect mods..

    Yep, the auto close has been like that for ages (to curtail spam). I'm not sure about the not even letting a Mod post though, unless forum privileges =! front page privileges. I do wish they had a "report post" button on the front page comments though.

    Yeah, we found some really really old news posts full of spam so went ahead with that, on the new system they will be forum posts so obviously far more obvious if they are being used as viagra offer repositories.
