Why was the Mexico thread closed?

I was very interested in leaning more about travel to Mexico I don't understand why that thread was closed I didn't read any nasty posts or polical comments. I would like to head down to Baja some day not alone maybe a small group. I read some good safety suggestions. Maybe I'm missing something....

That thread was closed as the discussion went south about the crime wave south of the border and several members started member bashing. As long as the topic remains on course about camping trips to Mexico it is fine, just remember to be careful when traveling in unfamiliar places.

Several members have sent p/m questioning the close status of the other thread. By the time the off topic and offending posts were eliminated, there was not much left. Let's try and keep the topic on camping in both south and north of the border on a positive experience.

Hi Jim
Thanks for your attention to appropriateness of thread comments. I never thought about it this way but a thread with negativity about Canada , the north, could go south. After 80 hours below zero we’re hovering on the plus side now and with the wind down it’s almost
balmy.

Not questioning anyone. I respect that the moderators have a job to do. I was just confused. I just didn't see the negative posts I understand now they were removed and the thread went too far south.

Love Mexico. Went to school in Mexico City. (Years ago.)
Too bad they have the issues they have as it is an interesting country, with mostly good people and inexpensive except for vehicle insurance.
And great coasts.
Maybe Baja?
