Deleting classifieds that have been closed would make the buying and selling forum MUCH more functional.
If you're looking for say a 32" pair of chinos, you can't search specifically for that using the filters (you'd have to scan through the whole list of pants offered), you have to use the search function for that.
People always post the waist measurement so you know that if you make a search using the term '32" ' you're liable to find what you're looking for, the problem is about 50% of the threads you'll open will be closed.
Searches would go a lot faster and easier if you were only offered active classifieds.
For ex. I tried searching for a pair of 32" pants and a lot of the pages I clicked through offered only closed classifieds and I had to click on each of them only to find they're closed, it's a big hassle and waste of time.
