Quit Locking Threads!

Honestly, does the request need to be in huge flippin' bold letters before it's given any real thought? I know it has been asked several times. I know several mods who've questioned the reason and stated that they do not support locking the daily threads.

As stated before they tend to take on a life of their own and spawn other discussions. Locking them is not only heavy handed moderation but stifles any form of thread progressions.

If I need to come up there and beat some folks in the head with a wiffle bat, I will. Trust me I have plenty of vacation time AND the afore mentioned instrument of wiffle beatage.

So again in really big bold letters so there is no confusion

QUIT LOCKING THE DAILY THREADS!













I have a word limit on my cynicism

Noo the means opposite of angry. See you read it and think I'm all angry and then you get to the bottom and see the and realize "Oohhhh haha he's being silly!". But then you always remember it and subconciously YOU STOP LOCKING THE THREADS!

It's all part of my evil genius

well, i think if theres nothing exciting happening in them, close them,, they will just end up being clutter, but if there is still discussion going on it should stay open, at least fo a while.

oi tossers!

what's wrong with being 34?

and following my polite notice to request no more daily thread locks, i thought that they had remained open.... to fester and drop off on to other, older pages......

Mr Wolfie at least seemed to think that.... and as far as i could tell, so did i!

and i am almost 35! big 'orra!
