Come on Mike. I'm assuming you didn't close it because of my post/s and there were 3 really intelligent answers and then one messed up answer.* Flaming and condescending messages: Flames are messages that personally attack, call people names, or otherwise harass another forum member (or any person or group). These, along with any generally condescending posts will be moved or removed at the moderators discretion.
* If the thread is flame-bait (appears to be intended to start an argument or is likely to cause an argument rather than enhance discussion), it will be locked or removed without notice. Individual flame-bait may be deleted or edited at the moderators' discretion. Any users who continue to post in this manner or engage in other questionable practices, like trolling (posting in an attempt to engage people in arguments) may be subject to more serious sanctions.
Its not flamebait, read my OP and the 3 good responces.
Just because its a dodgy issue doesn't automatically mean its flamebait. I actually made a very concious effort to follow the guidelines we had from our last conversation.
Are you locking it just because of 1 post ? Why can't you just discipline that poster ?
If you are locking it because of that one post then all it takes is 1 guy to disagree with a topic, whether it breaks the COC or not, and all he has to do is go into the thread and curse and offend someone and here presto magic the thread is locked.
Come on Mike give me some slack here. Read my OP, Its not flamebait and its certainly not offensive.
