Did I do something wrong?

I recently posted a sensationalist-style item in the "Firm" section of the forums:


It was all caps. I hate when people do that.

BUT STILL (see? its addictive)

Why did they close the comments so quickly? Am I being punished?

First, the Verge is ignoring the Lerner email story. Second, they close my thread about it.

Conspiracy? Am I just paranoid?
