The "garden thread" is a joke on there. None of them actually garden for any real length of time (and the few that do are not heavy posters on the thread ironically).
MF is usually very against closing cards as a rule. Store cards seem to be "ok" to close but closing any "real" card? If you make a thread about it you are given 500 usually meaningless reasons to keep it. Not that there's never a good reason to keep a card, but some of them act like you're committing a mortal sin if you want to just move on from a card.
