LOCK THIS THREAD
« on: May 01, 2008, 12:04:13 PM »

HEY PEOPLE DON'T RESPOND TO THIS THREAD

IT WOULD BE A SERIOUS WASTE OF PRECIOUS TIME

JUST READ THE THREE OLD THREADS OK?


Why do threads get locked? It could be that the administrators believe they know better than the users. I know that's untrue. It's better to leave a thread open to the potential for improvement. We're all pretty smart folk that can regulate each other with pith and wit without the need for big brother's heavy hand. If you agree, respond to this thread or lock it (see what I did there). TWO LEGS BAD! SOYLENT THREADS IS PEOPLE!

I assume you're referring to this:
http://brontoforum.us/index.php?topic=380.msg7476#msg7476
Karma++ BTW 2 teh Geoz.

While I don't think conversation on the subject is necessarily done (mine is, though) I think that thread has reached a satisfying conclusion. It's got it's own public service announcement at the end and everything! It would be a worthwhile Thread of Legend. It is, as stands, complete and perfect. I'm inordinately amused with my own stupidity and chronicling it, but I'd personally like that thread to be done.

It's asinine, but you could just as easily start a new thread on whatever tangent or update you wanted and simply reference the old, locked one through quotes. Doing them manually so that they have all of the features of the "quote button" script is a bitch, but it can be done.

Nobody in this free-to-use messageboard owes you people anything, most especially the admin who spend selfless hours working for the satisfying reward of not getting paid and user-bitching. If every one of them banned us all and quit tomorrow there would STILL be absolutely no call for the random bouts of "Wah wah you owe me such and such"

I move that subjective hilariously contradictory material be stricken from enshrined in the record.

No, this is a long-standing annoyance I've had. Nothing to do with Sour Gropes, though that did remind me of this subject.

Hey Thad, I would protest if this thread got locked, but I wouldn't say the admin didn't have a right to do it. The purpose of that statement which you have taken out of context was to point out that Arc shouldn't have been attacked, but rather boycotted (with stated reason) or forgiven. The difference here is that I'm attacking an idea, not a person. I'd think a politically minded fellow such as yourself would see that distinction instinctually.

I love Thad. He's proficient at skirting the issue, like a total pussywipe, and he reminds me of President Clinton because he never answers a direct thought without first nitpicking every detail first.

Sorry for calling you names. I won't use my youth as an excuse. That was just crude.

There IS an important line between HOLDING A SENSELESS GRUDGE THAT DIVIDES A COMMUNITY and DENOUNCING AN IDEA.

If you disagree with that kiss my ass Obama should lose.

Edit: I just realized how flawlessly you trolled my thread. Rather than addressing the issue you attacked my character. Are we swapping roles now?

There is also an important line between making sense and rambling incoherently, but you don't fish watermelon run a park.

No, that post didn't invalidate anything.  I was still right, and Cannon was right in saying that he thought I was wrong.

You, on the other hand, just fucked it up.
