Closed thread wrongly displays post form

    On a closed thread the page still displays the inviting post form with user avatar beside it.

    Having the post form all ready to use with my avcatar beside it is a very powerful design feature. It draws me in and pulls me to post because it makes me look as if I'm already part of the thread.

    A closed thread should therefore mark its difference by NOT displaying the editor form.
    - it rather dilutes the welcoming feel on all other threads showing that the editor post form is just thrown in everywhere there is a thread;.
    - it actually sets the user up for rebuff - if the text about the message is not noticed, user writes post maybe with care and effort, only to be rejected. NOT a good gift to our user.

    Quick conditional on this pretty please.
    Maybe for now we could add it to EXTRA.css?

    It only shows like that if you have the appropriate moderator permissions.

    That is, you have the ability to open/close the thread and reply yourself. (Because you could just open it, reply, and close it.)
