Why are certain threads getting locked with no explanation? I mean, hey, if shit hits the fan I get it for sure but the most recent example is the Sleeping Feet thread, civil discussion going on and then BAM. Topic Closed. Any mods going to chime in?

We see patterns in the discussions here. Topics start heading in a negative "uncivil" direction (more so lately than ever), so the negative comments get deleted and the topic gets closed or moved before it gets out of hand.

It's easier to snuff a candle than to fight a blaze. We've been fighting too many blazes lately.

I've noticed and been wondering about this for awhile now also, as it seems once a thread that is of a topic that is actually interesting (as opposed to something that gets asked over and over like "what celebrity feet do you like the most?") for once has a good, intriguing discussion going on free of any discord, the discussion is abruptly ended and the thread locked.

Because they are the Moderators. Don't ask questions, it was the best decision to keep the peace. Good enough for them, should be good enough for all of us as well.

That’s it in a nutshell. I should probably close this thread, lol!

Yeah basically if anyone has a disagreement or differing opinion it's considered uncivilized now.
Before you know it men will have to get neutered and their hands cut off for speaking their minds.

5thgear - you should see some of the BS we have to deal with before you judge.

As moderators, we have a lot to deal with. We understand that everyone has their opinion, but things get out of hand way too quick and we're trying to curb that problem. I'd rather lock a thread than to have arguments start, deleting posts, and potentially have people leave or be banned.

Why not post a simple explanation when locking a thread?

Or people could show a little respect for each other and be polite. That’d be cool too [Cool]

Like I said in the original post of this thread, I completely understand when a thread turns into a flame war to shut er' down, but when another thread is going in a civil manner and then BAM! Locked! It just doesn't make sense to me. I'd like to see a final post by the mod locking it down outlining why it was shut down so that way the forum can see how not to act for example.

There wasn't anything in the "sleepy feet" thread posted that was uncivil as far as I can see, unless there were deleted posts. You'd have to have extremely delicate sensibilities to be insulted by anything posted there.

It's too bad. That was a discussion that needed to be had.
