That is a thought. Though when the thread turns into a mess of personal attacks, it gets shut down. That linked thread was too full of personal attack and baiting back and forth, so its going to stay locked.
I don't think it was a mess of personal attacks, Sherman. ok doser and I were hashing out a lot of history, it's true, but it was a discussion in my thread, which meant I wasn't derailing anyone else's thread. If he reported me at any point then I'd understand your decision better, but if he didn't, then... ? In between Wizard was having a good conversation about tariffs, and all of that going on is what makes a forum tick.
It would be nice if there was more of a median moderating place between 'absolutely no veering from the topic of the thread' and cage fighting.
