Locking Threads

Postby pjbogart » Fri Jun 07, 2013 9:31 pm

I know this point has been brought up before, and in fact this very topic has a locked thread that was properly concluded, but it seems that the final comment in every locked thread should be from an admin. It doesn't have to be detailed, just a quick thought on why the thread serves no purpose for TDPF. Trolling, the signal to noise ratio has been violated, inconducive to intelligent discussion, etc.

Don't just ground me, TELL me why I'm grounded.

Looks like a few people are trying to get threads locked down because they don't want certain topics discussed.

I never mentioned your name. You must feel guilty.

Wow, didn't long for this thread to head south.

To the point, it would be nice to know why a particular thread is locked, although I suspect the reason is pretty obvious most of the time.

Of course, Lawrence, you WERE the one proposing that a thread be locked down at 9:56 this morning. So there's that.

Because I didn't want certain topics discussed? Read carefully, Stu. Then comment. Thanks.
