Honest question
« on: October 20, 2017, 11:31:59 AM »

Why haven't those other two "Honest Question" threads been locked yet? They're devolving into the same type of silliness that has gotten other threads closed recently.

Do we now have factions within the forum? We have pro-moderation and anti-moderation, pro-Alanland and anti-Alanland, pro-unrealistic fantasy proposals and anti-unrealistic fantasy proposals, etc.

edited post to remove paragraph

Also, you probably know that this thread will devolve into silliness like the other two did.

Big question is why are some users on here who have been known to be idiots toward others not been banned other than dzlabe?  Most likely cause mods don't want to jump the gun yet and actually give us the benefit of the doubt. If we really locked everything in sight there would really be no good threads and it would be like being under martial law.

Bottom line is we have to allow the bad if we want the rest of the good to remain.

It will pass if we don't fuel the flames, and what you're doing is adding another stick to the fire, sir! I'd put the stick back in the Pile of Good Threads and not in the Fire of Hopeless Threads. :bigass:

He's banned. You can check by looking in the list of members; banned members are not listed, and he's not there.

Too bad so sad, he should have thought about it back then. Now he occupies a spot in the Road Enthusiast "hall of shame" along with Carl Rogers and company.

To some people he may be. To others, he isn't. Why do people like one musician and not another?
