Close a Discussion Thread
This option allows any Moderator to stop future emails from a particular Discussion Thread. This ends the Discussion for all Subscribers.
By Thread, we mean Replies to an email message. (Typically, a Thread will have the same subject line.)
Once this option is turned on, messages will include a link which is only visible to the List Owner and Moderators. Simply click and confirm to block future messages for that Thread.
Allow Subscribers to close a Discussion Thread for themselves.
