    Oh

    So the answer is big gorilla? Is it that hard to get a straight answer here? Why was the thread locked? This isn't a big censorship board so WTF? Nobody's crying; just asking a question.

    I closed it

    I got a complaint. I'm letting it cool off. I might open it again. I might not. Nothing corporate about that at all. In all honesty, I've just been waiting for a complaint to push me to close that one.

    If I really wanted to censor it, I would have deleted it.

    Are you serious? That was honestly the only way you could communicate with them? There's no possible alternative?

    Gene,

    Thanks for the answer. So, for future reference, if something on a given thread bothers me such that I complain to you, you'll close that thread?

    So there's no standard?

    Seriously, if you get a complaint, why not warn the user who drove the complaint or, better yet, since, as has been discussed on these fora before, we're fairly troll-tolerant here, why not just admonish the complainer to brush up on their keyboard-fu and not be inflamed by trolls?

    I'm not crying; I'm asking what makes this not purely arbitrary? Seems to me you close a thread if the thread is, on the whole, offensive or of an unacceptable nature and not because an individual posted something on a thread that illicited a complaint.

    There are mods on this board who shamelessly troll and who call people inflamatory names, even noobs who've been here only once or twice. All manner of flame wars go on here. Near porn gets posted here regularly. I'm not complaining about any of it. My complaint is that the shutting down of a thread, which has some good stuff in it despite the reparte of the last couple of days, seems really arbitrary given what goes on here on a day to day basis. If you want to be arbitrary, I guess that's your right as the owner of the board but, if that's not your intent, you should either unlock it or be able to say why, in the case-by-case basis system, the complaint necessitated locking the thread.
