I know they say contact us if we feel we have an issues with moderators closing threads, to me that seems sketchy, like there is something to hide. Why can't this be discussed in the open among the users of this site? Don't worry, we wont rise up against the man
Anyway, I feel threads are closed a lot, things get passionate and there is some good discussion and interest to come from that. If people throw around insults, then shut them down not the thread.
Mods have been getting too gung-ho with shutting down threads for quite some time now and beware of you bring this up in the open. Just saying it has become a little too Big Brotherish.
Just my opinion, other will disagree I am sure. I hope I do not get banned for stating my thoughts on this or that this thread is closed right away. (*please do not hurt my family) (** that was a joke )
