Unfortunately, this misses the point.  Whether you called it a "closure" or
"cancellation" or a "stoppage" or whatever.  You halted the process that a
lot of people were contributing to.  They had a right to be heard.  This
wastes a lot of time and looks like bad behavior for an admin to kill an AfD
early, especially one he has been involved in.
