yes titaniumtux you had the "right" to lock the thread according to the rules ...
but since nobody was complaining/reporting I would think that the community was "ok" with this thread ?
BTW the rule like "trolling" can be easily applied to almost every thread I wonder if you did deleted any "despicable nastiness" before I noticed ?

so my suggestion to the mods/admins is to ease up on those "rules" unless there is a some sort of nastiness , name calling , illegal staff etc. ...

How do you know the community does not have an issue with it? Perhaps it's come to a point where racist trolls will just be racist trolls and so people ignore those threads like me.

Just because you and a handful of bigots want a free ride in a thread does not mean the community at large is okay with it.

I personally just got bored of calling people out in OT because it's kinda pathetic how warped people's views are lol. I suggest you make an account on another website where your kind run free.

Edit: mods what's the latest on that idea of creating a subforum for political/religious/racist talk??

I'd say probably the same old bickering that started off right from the first reply.

I think people's concerns have been voiced. Should the Admins wish to comment they can add to this thread. As it stands now it's just turning into a pile on second guessing every thread which has been locked or actioned.

More information will follow when the new sub-forum is created along with the rules to go along with it.
