Argument and logic behind the idea were presented and supported data/evidence was linked, with not real counter argument besides “the mods don’t want to take care of any potential abuse” which is just silly.

The same topic generates more than 3x the posted responses than the poll version, which generated more votes but still sunk because votes don’t count as any sort of contribution for keeping poll topics visible.

Is this board for site suggestions of for shutting down ideas without intelligent discussion?

I imagine it was closed for one of two reasons:
(1) The mods feel it's a bad idea that should not be implemented.
(2) There were multiple anti-signs and (aside from you) nobody in the topic supported your idea.

I get 1, but again there was no actual discussion behind it. I provided some initial evidence supporting the idea and the topic was closed. There was no negative impact beyond “potential abuse” which this site is equipped to deal with(close the topics being mass bumped abused, only allow registered users to vote, etc).

For 2, *anti sign* posts should be supported with additional reasons, instead of a shallow dismissal.

No, that's not a requirement:

-Anti-signing the petition - these users disagree with the idea, and are encouraged (but not required) to explain the reason(s) for their disagreement

I get that it isn’t a requirement, but again, it just seems like a poor way to go about things, especially when ideas are resented with reason and supporting evidence.

This board is not for asking why posts were moderated or discussing locked topics. Please, only post here when you have a suggestion.

Unless it’s an idea that mods know won’t happen, we rarely close topics anymore, so it’s likely an admin closed the topic because it won’t happen, or a mod with knowledge of whether or not the idea would happen closed it. Either way, that’s the indication that the idea is not going to happen at this time.
