    Default Thread closures

    I have a BIG mouth... know, I admit it.. and occasionally, when I get riled, it overtakes my brain and runs off.. marathon style.. but what I hope doesn't happen, (and if it does I'm truly sorry), is derail someone elses thread where they ask for help, that it has to be closed.

    All of us, (big mouth me included!!!) need to recognise when the thread turns from the debate of the issue into personal mud slinging match and back off.

    Thanx for listening!!

    Well I just took a look at what was goin on in the thread since I posted there as well and it derailed big-time with the school boy antics.

    Snaps for the closure.

    To be honest, the guys who keep forums running are those who prevents the place from turning to Army-alike. Because threre are some individuals who can't help turning every thread into a personal issue, and funny how most of them are Sam fans (just a side note). Some threads aren't even closed as soon as then should be.


    And on that thread - it's actually pitty that it required original poster to PM mod to shut it down

    Truthfully guys, I have never understood why threads had to be closed. I find that the jousting is sometimes quite entertaining. If you don't want to participate then don't participate. Eventually the threads burn themselves out anyway. The thread in question was definetely more interesting that the (when was the last time you laid bullshit) or (imagenary rock n roll hall of fame) blah blah blah.

    Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. Often they escalate to multiple threads as well. I know people love to joust, but shit do it on email or PM then.

    So basically your saying that if people have a difference of opinion on any given matter, its not to be discussed in an open forum?

    Pretty sure he's saying expression of differences is fine, if conducted in a civilized manner.

    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    When people go into a thread it's usually because either a: the title enticed them and it was something they thought they might be interested in or b: they've previously visited the thread and were now looking to see what's been added since. In neither case is it all enjoyable to find the completely off-topic sniping as was going on in the thread in question. It's one thing to have give-and-take over a various position that's pertinent to the subject matter, but the posting in that thread had gone beyond that. And if that kind of posting is truly what you seek, I hope you find it - just not here.
