The threads in question are still open because they have a "Add Your Message Here" box at the bottom.

After a thread reaches 200 posts, the page becomes very long and loads slower, so we archive the oldest 100 posts to an archive page as you have noticed at the top of the page.

The most current 100 posts remain on the "active" page and continue to appear in chronological order as they were posted. Anyone can add a reply using the box at the bottom of the page.

The archived pages do not allow posting in order to maintain a chronological listing for easy reading. Often times questions are answered on the active page.

The links you posted will always link to the current (active) page of that thread, no matter how many posts or archived pages are created.

The Previous & Next links at the bottom-right of the page will take a user to the active thread page, or to an archive page (if they exist).
