Why are Topics being marked as "Closed" in Gnome's Discourse if

Discourse is officially replacing Gnome’s Mailman Mailing lists, where nobody could unilaterally just end a community discussion on a certain thread?

If Gitlab is already being used to track “closable” issues, what is the purpose of prematurely stymie conversation by closing a discourse topic?

Threads can be re-opened by request. They are closed after a period of inactivity, because Information goes stale quite quickly, given the rate of development in opensource projects.

GitLab is used for development, and having a dedicated space for general discussion and brainstorming maintains a healthy signal-noise ratio in the issue trackers.
