Could anyone let me know why harmless ....FUN....threads get shut down just because *some* who respond on it go off-topic? icon_confused.gif

Would it not be a courtesy to perhaps "give a warning" to those who respond *inappropriately* rather than shut down a fun discussion?

While I don't necessarily agree with the policy (whether it's an official policy or just the habit of some moderators) of locking every thread that seems to get heated or whatever, I respect the owners and moderators right to do what they feel is best.

Personally, I think everyone needs to put their big girl panties on and learn to deal with the problems and scuffles that come up... if you think an individual is causing a problems or acting inappropriately, report that person to the moderators and they should be warned/dealt with as the moderators see fit (as you suggested). But locking the thread just seems silly to me... but it's not my site, so it's not up to me!

Speaking of panties, I don't wear any.

When they "shut down" a thread, do they make it just go away in its entirety? Is that why I can't find that thread from earlier today where someone used ******** in her subject and wanted to know what happened to the button she used to click on? And then all ******* broke loose?

some threads get deleted, some just get locked, so no one else can reply.

the problem is that the off topic drama distracts from the true basis of a thread - so even if the orgininal question still gets answered, who will read through all the drama to get to it?

if you see drama do not comment on it. if you are offended by the drama, report it rather than add to it!
