Question SIte Suggestions, Politics and Closed Threads - Question from a Newbie

Hi I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and am new to this site.

I saw a thread in this section (Suggestions & Feedback) regarding the no politics guideline.

While I understand the topic of politics itself is presently not allowed, this is the site suggestions section, and I don't understand why the thread was closed by a mod?

Maybe I am being paranoid but as a newcomer it's a bit scary to see discussions just shut down like that on a support site?

As ADDers we are often ignored, excluded, or looked down upon by others and it just doesn't feel right I guess.

I don't think that thread was closed because of the topic.

I think it was closed to give the admins time to catch up on reading the posts and discuss the topic.
