    Please stop locking threads unless they really get out of hand. Check the threads that are currently locked. There really isn't any reason for it. I haven't been involved in any of the locked threads recently, but just because a moderator doesn't like seeing a couple guys disagree is no reason to lock the thread.

    Also, why is it acceptable for moderators to post on a thread after it has been locked while us lowly members can't?

    Thats ok.........i seem to be unable to find my "gasoline rant" thread.........that seems to have disappeared completely. It wasn't political, so i don't know why it was erased.
    Oh well.......

    Threads will no longer be deleted unless the orig poster is notified or unless they are just total garbage/troll/flame bait etc.

    It isn't ok for the mods to post after it has been locked and this has been addressed recently.

    Thanks for the concern and your patience and we will hopefully have a more standardized system for controlling posts soon.

    I didn't start the gas thread, just gave my opinions. I don't THINK my opinions were garbage, or troll bait............and i know i didn't call anyone names or anything like that. Unless someone posted after me that did.
    I have seen threads attacking people on here that were allowed. All i did was post how i felt we could get our own fuel supply. I don't know why that would be controversial. If someone did disagree with me, i would have had a good discussion, with facts interlaced......not attacks.

    Honestly I don't know the specifics of that thread or why it was removed. Know that from here on out threads won't be removed, just locked unless they are just put up by a flamer/troll to get a reaction then they will just be toasted.

    Yeah, this was kind of pissing me off. Thank you for addressing it Ryan.

    I was wondering about the gas thread too.

    I guess there was some stuff afterwards that caused it's demise. (And i was just getting on a roll, too!LOLOLOL!!!) :lol:
    I know what you mean Ryan.......i really don't understand WHY someone would come on a site JUST to make people mad. It's SUCH a waste.
