One minute we were posting stuff, and the next, locked out.

Just the subject line; not necessarily the content.

This type of resistance never turns out well.

The admins do what they think is best for the site and BGG's interest. Leroy/Roger is fairly innocuous in his moderation, so personally I cut him some slack.

And this response is in no way an attempt to butter up, as my butter is rancid.

I doubt locking that thread will restore order to The Internet and, by extension, boardgamegeek.com. Gripes about thread derailment add to the problem of derailment and are more annoying than the initial thread derailment.

I must be the exception, because I still seem to have a few odd bits of content scattered about that haven't been locked up. Sorry to hear they got all yours, Chapel.

And for the record, I didn't permanently lock it. It just needed a cool down.

More like a McDonald's grease fire of extra sinewy McNuggets.

I'm getting soft in my old age, because I wanted to say extra fatty, but didn't want that to be misconstrued with someone equating BGG userbase with extra fatty. I do think sinewy is fine to equate, espec with that Chapel persona.

You could always put up the admin warning about thread derailment... Oh... Wait...

So admins will lock threads if they get off topic or too heated? What's to stop people continuing the conversation in another thread? Seems like a lot to keep up on.

I don't want to be internet snarky. My 'wrong' was rude. Sorry.

I don't like Pandemic either, but no one is forcing you or me to play it. Most of us are subscribed to that thread because we care about this community and want to know when somebody leaves and their content is gone. It's annoying to get 20 notifications of off-topic, irrelevant stuff.

It was the right call, IMO. I was on the verge of locking it myself, also temporarily and also for the same reason.

I probably would have beaten Roger to it had my usual work space not been disrupted by repairs the past week.

Not sure how you think that's relevant. Do you disagree that the thumbs in a thread are a good indication of what the people reading the thread think about the posts in the thread?

I'm not sure that thumbs are a good indication of anything other than "number of people who thumbed this post"

Thumbs are entirely irrelevant as to what I find annoying.
