There was quite a bit of foolishness going on near the end of that thread. But it raises a question.

If there is a thread that people don't like, is it only necessary to get a few people to collude in derailing it to get it closed?

I would think that it would be just as easy to delete the offending comments (the ones where people are calling each other vile names) as it is to close a thread. In that case people who are having a serious discussion (as serious as can be expected in cyberspace) can continue.

But then again, I am not a mod and am not privy to what they can and can't do so I'm sure that they have their reasons for not taking that approach.
