Given that a craze is defined as "faddish behaviour indulged in by many" - I don't think closing the odd thread really meets the description.
Nor (much as it may surprise you) do we actually receive any vicarious form of pleasure from it.
Personally I would be more than happy if I never closed another thread (dream). I also know that for as long as there are people who allow their typing fingers to perform faster than their brains can possibly follow that it will continue to be necessary.
