    Why was my thread closed?
    I started a thread on malware/virus for osx.

    It was closed.

    Just wondering if it was server resources or propaganda.

    See the thread - the conversation had run its course and was becoming one in which it was devolving into borderline personal attacks.

    Also your last post had masked cussing in it which is not allowed here on Mac Forums and a member of staff issued you a warning as well as closed the thread.

    Also like Van said above, it was getting personal with attacks and all that needed to be said had already been said.

    Well there were personal attacks against me.

    I was accused of asking for advice and not following it, but I downloaded antivirus software.

    Sorry about the cussing. I am a sailor, literally...

    It's nothing personal. We work to stop conversations from becoming personal battlegrounds and this goes for all users and all threads. This one was no exception.
