Thank you.

I don't want to imply an obligation for others, but I suggest it will be
(beyond the short term) less painful for future thread-closing actions
if that is documented in an official document at a known web page URL.
So every time a moderator closes a thread, the message announcing that
action can simply say "see <URL:foo> for what this means".
