A certain thread has recently been closed due to two people having a squabble. I'd like to ask why? Other recent threads where worse stuff has been done have just had warnings issued and the offending posts removed. I find it highly inconsistent that this thread was closed. Apart from the recent posts by the banned member the thread has been very civil apart from a very minor dispute and the only objections raised to it in the thread was about the use of "rape" in the title.
What's changed?No, we don't have to close it. Everybody has been behaving and apologizing when they went overboard. Actually, for a contentious subject, it was a pretty civil discussion most of the time. We get much nastier in the when is Martin's book coming out thread.
Am I being inconsistant with objecting to this and not other stuff. Yes but then i'm not a moderator
Some people were enjoying the thread and found it worthwhile. Why allow one member to stop that?
If Rob inteneded to reopen the thread after removing the offending post then I apologise for this thread but he didn't state that and I find the thread closure highly inconsistent and unfair to other members participating in the thread.
