A rash of thread closures...

...what's uip with that?

Are people more hostile lately?

Are mods more sensitive as of late?

Are the planets aligned wrong (this is for you carlos, you old philosophizing hippie ).

Ay Dios mio...que carajo esta pasando aqui????

Some were deleted by those who started them. Only a couple were closed by Hattie and I.

This is getting tiring tho...

Which were classics, btw. It was like taking the Mona Lisa and tossing it into a dumpster.

No need Bri - the threads are still here, they were not deleted. They're on P.2 of the forum right now, in all their prehistoric hydrocarbonized glory...

Howdy All,
Look on the bright side. When a thread is deleted it doesn't affect your post count like in the good ol'days.

But that is the fun in being a mod...that you hold such power...of life and death...over a little old thread...

If you think this is tough, try what I once had to do for 2 years. I supervised a unit in our office.

Supervising attorneys is like herding cats, there is a lot of hissing and spitting and you end up with scratches on your back.

Never again!
