Default need to do something about moving threads

i was in the off topic section and there are a bunch of threads that have been moved
thats great that mods are doing there jobs and what not but really whats the point in moving a thread if it still shows up in the original place with a little "Moved" next to it where you can click and view it still?

idk why but it bugs me to see that does it anyone else?

maybe im just crazy
