i was worried that a thread that many people said was "very interesting" wouldnt be closed. im a regular poster on 5 or 6 other message boards and ive never seen moderators so quick to lock threads. whats the deal? i dont understand, are the moderators scared we;re going to attack each other or something? we were having a civil discussion about a relevant issue and broke 0 rules. as far as im aware, if users dont want to read a thread they dont have to, so im not sure why threads are so quick to be closed. im sure this comes off like im trying to be a troublemaker or something, but i just dont understand why people discussing a subject in a thread warrants the thread being locked? it seems REALLY unnecessary to me and is actually somewhat off-putting.
I mean this in the best way: saying something like that is a really good way to get another thread locked and a mandatory vacation from Head-Fi. The moderators do a pretty good job, and they get a lot of crap they don't deserve. For every "unfair" lock, there are one or two that kept people from getting angry, offensive, spiteful, or their feelings hurt.
