anyway, why don't you just delete closed threads after a day (when everybody has seen it's closed)?
It reduces other's post counts, and actually causes more trouble to the server than it is worth. Most of the time, if you delete a post early, it is easy to handle. The only time we really delete a thread, is when we get a full fledged spam attack on the forums as a whole. Basically, what Jed says is true. We lock the thread, and watch it dissapear.

It's easier to periodically delete old threads, but usually admins will do a mass pruning about once a year.
