^ Understandable. It's a special case that usually happens when a new member posts a thread on a topic the community deems sensitive. Whenever a thread is switched from public to private, the OP and any non-full-members that have posted in it to that point continue to be able to see and post in that thread.
The web spiders never sleep.
There are lots of places that aren't sensitive, I would play it safe if you're just learning this site and it's culture.
Post in the right forums; if in doubt post in this forum or your regional forum.
Try to avoid posting threads that need moved or that will get locked
