Thread moves
This is a question for Mike.

Is it possible to have expiring thread redirects? I know other boards have them expire and disappear after some period of time. I suspect that a week would be a sufficient time to keep a "moved" tag in the incorrect forum for a thread that we have moved.

I know this question came up before about why the "moved" tags were there, and this would correct the problem over time and still allow the original poster to find his thread initially if he came back in a reasonable amount of time.
