    Mod closing threads getting out of hand?

    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 )

    The problem is that people keep creating new threads to discuss things that either a) there are already active threads about, or b) are in direct violation of forum rules.

    I've yet to see an original, helpful thread be closed for no apparent reason.

    Yeh there are these reasons, and also there are a few threads that people get passionate about, But then there are the people who rage and say silly things that ruin it for everyone else, and they don't have tons of spare Mods to read the threads all day to quickly delete posts/warn people/ban etc so it's often easier to close a thread once the number of non useful people gets too high

Find an excuse to let one of these off the chain, and I personally guarantee, the bad guys won't even wanna come out of their caves. Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration... the Jericho.

    Feel free to pass along any mod feedback (in this case, regarding thread closure) to one of the admins, such as Sunshine. This isn't really the place to discuss it.
