    Fair enough - Would be great if when a thread is locked, the OP is also locked from editing their initial post.

    There's no need to open up the thread again. I've said what I needed to say and he's getting all his money back. Many of you know me by now over the years as a person and as a long time sponsor and if you think there is truth to what he is saying, then let it be. I have a business to run, a community to serves, so I have no time to waste on this individual.

    That's more of a bug. Hopefully the new forum they implement prevents that from happening. I think that's the first time I've ever seen a thread locked on this forum. :D

    The intent of locking the other thread was to encourage cooler heads to prevail and prevent escalation, which is counter-productive. Naturally there are ways around locked threads, and in that respect the lock failed to produce the intended result.

    Excessive moderation is not the goal here. We support free expression and frankly, none of the BOD have the time to police threads.
