Many times when looking at a topic I will think its closed because it has [closed] in the title, only to realize its been moved from another stackexchange board.

    Got an example? Normally, migrated questions don't keep the [closed], although they can certainly be closed (again) post-migration. – Shog9 Mar 17 '11 at 21:51

    Not a bug. What you've written in the title and post contradict each other. – J.K. Mar 17 '11 at 21:59

This isn't correct; I suspect you are seeing a post that was migrated and closed here on this very site.

To expand on @jeffs answer.

If, say, a question is migrated from Stackoverflow to Programmers. The Question is Closed on Stackoverflow and then the link redirects to Programmers.

Not entirely sure how the system works (Its possibly documented somewhere on meta.se).

I myself have a question I asked on SO. I asked a mod later to move it off to programmers. So it shows as a normal question here, but the question shows on my list of questions on my profile with [closed] in the title.
