The same people that preach freedom of speech don't practice it?

Hell, I dunno why. You, or somebody in your thread, touched a nerve of a moderator, probably with some subconscious turmoil linked to your thread contents.

I had that happen ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL the time. I would have my threads closed because OTHER PEOPLE would make comments about me. I even created a thread with the same title as yours.

lately EVERY SINGLE thread of mine has been locked. the thread can be 50 pages long and as soon as someone makes a negative comment in there the whole thing gets locked.

it seems like they are not tolerating any thing anymore. don't worry though, it's only a thread. speak of threads, I'm actually hanging by one, if i get one more infraction i am getting banned.

They get closed for a reason. Often, if we only delete certain posts, those involved in the argument/issue will just post new ones and the thread continues to spiral down.

I usually try and post a message saying that the thread has been closed and a new one can be opened with the same topic, provided that whatever caused it to be closed stays out of the new thread - i.e. personal attacks, language, etc.

The 'cops' thread was closed due to some racial posts and ensuing arguments generated over said posts.

Because you keep causing problems, and deleting your posts does not prevent the arguments from continuing.

Yes in the past few days there has been a few threads locked, I apologize but sometimes that has to happen.

Btw Kamil your sig has been changed, you shouldn't brag about your infractions.
