    Under what circumstances can a mod close a thread? One of mine got closed simply because I told the mod there wasn't any trouble and we did not need him starting it. Seems like his reason for closing it was personal or a power trip. Yeah, I did say that we did not need him coming in ruining a thread or our good mood. I also said there was no fighting and nothing to moderate. YankeeRose seems to have closed my thread when I was just trying to keep the peace myself...not that I'd ever want to moderate this place. But there was discussion going on. I would like a review if you would, please. The topic was "Even Dave Mustaine wants Dave back in" or something like that. I believe that YankeeRose has used his power to close a topic of discussion because of, like I said before, personal or power reasons. I do not believe he/she set an example towards the end of the thread and then closed it when I said what I said. I think it was heavy handed and an act of censorship of an unpopular opinion.

    You were being an idiot to me so I closed your topic. There were other people that you were arguing in it with as well, but what you said to me in your last post was what made me decide to close it. I'm a Moderator in that forum and I decide what gets closed and what stays open, that's how it works.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    It seems his answer was "personal reasons". BTW, you didn't think this was some idiot democracy, did you? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks AlexFan for bringing this to our attention. I can't really defend why Yankee chose to close that topic. It seems Yankee took your insult a little personal. I might have taken it personal had it been said to me, but I think closing that topic wasn't the best decision.

    I opened it. You whiners can stop yer whining for 2 minutes, but don't think I think Yankee was out of line. It's frustrating dealing with some of you, just as frustrating as you think we are to you.

    Here's the thing guys...I realy wasn't on a mission to insult him. This isn't about me whining or being a victim. I just thought that when he jumped in he was a little harsh and I really didn't see the need in that. Yes, I understand that the mods deserve respect because they keep this place running just as you two guys do. And even if you hadn't opened it back up, I would try not to let your reasons bother me. We all look at things a little differently. Hell, there are such big differences in opinion here from everyone that I know certain sides have a bad rap with you. I am not trying to get over on YankeeRose, nor am I trying to skirt my responsibility for what I typed. Yes, I know what I said would piss some people off. But there wasn't any fighting going on. I didn't cuss at him. I did show that much respect. Thank you guys for looking at this from both sides.

    Hey man, I appreciate it. Was I whining? I just asked a question. I guess the question I now have is this: Am I frustrating to you? Maybe I don't want the answer. But I do try to show you and the mods here respect. I take responsibility for what I said, but don't think that I think what I said was bad. It was just a little frustrating trying to discuss the topic and having a mod...of all people...coming in and saying the kind of stuff he did. Sorry.
