This person closed a bunch of threads that were interesting and informative. Why? 

I felt like my lifeline was being cut.

I don't know anyone in real life who reads the manga that I do. So I rely on such forums to keep my sanity. It's great to be able to discuss our ideas together. It's cruel and crazy-making to close threads that people are still interested it, just because they have been open a long time, or because the question is supposedly being asked in the "wrong" forum.

I did a grad school project on user forum design, and really, there is no faster way to kill a community than to slap people in the virtual face this way.

Comments, commiseration and criticism welcome.
