We could say that about a lot of things besides just long redirects, Miss Van Pelt.

In the Exams section, if I move (someone else's) thread to a new location, I might leave a redirect that'll expire in 1 or 2 weeks since not everyone there will login "everyday".

If the thread is one that shouldn't have been there in the first place, then I'll leave a redirect for an hour or two.

Is the cluttering of the fora an issue?

If so, why lat30????

Well, I imagined by the non-response that there was a lot of back-room discussion about whether lat30 should be consigned to the reef for all eternity, but I guess that was all fantasy.
