Deleting threads

Why do non related RC threads stay on the thread listing page. I don't want to read about the Olympics or TV shows.

Why can't the moderators just delete these threads from the thread page all together?

Moderators are not allowed to delete any thread. The reasoning behind this is that when a thread is deleted there is no way to know what the content of the thread was. The deleted thread could have contained spam or it could have been relevant to the site. By disallowing deletion of threads admins can always go back and check to see that proper moderation is occurring.
