Re: Why do some topics get locked out??

There are many reasons a thread can be closed. When people are not getting along for example or when a thread seems to be only a part of a conversation or maybe one that is being continued from another web sites forums... There are many reasons beyond those and and the copo forum here tends to get special attention because of past problems revolving around other sites...

Re: Why do some topics get locked out??

There seems to be an extrordinary amount of bashing going on in the past couple of days. Those threads got locked. People just need to carefully choose their words - after they've tried every way possible to resolve the matter with the vendor. I can't afford to buy any new parts so it makes no sense to bash a guy at the swap meet who sold me something used.

Threads get locked, even deleted, not just for vendor bashing. When certain posts in a thread become rather "heated" or argumentative to the point that they detract from the original intent of the thread......that's when the lock appears.

Mods please lock this thread

jk - that 'whistle' in the upper right corner is a good way to get the mods to look at a given thread you might think is going off the rails
They may not lock it, but they will then be aware of what's going on and will most like "moderate" and edit posts that get into mud-slinging and other untastefull topics
