Mods, why was that thread locked?
I am really annoyed with the haphazard way that threads are locked.
I didn't start that particular thread, nor do I necessarily agree with it. Regardless, if you're going to shutdown a thread you should complement that lock with a little explanation to your reasoning. This is what every other board does.
Sure, perhaps a couple of the comments were a tad over the top - but you could have easily deleted those instead of locking the entire thread.
Again, I don't necessarily agree with that post - but it is fair game.
Yes, this is "your forum", as I am sure several posters will remind me, but it's meant for "us fans". You should be happy that we're here at all - it's a sign that we're passionate. Trust me... the next step, complete apathy, is not what any of us want.
