Ofc it must be Blizzard - never the posters fault.
Look at all the "no flying" threads that popped up here after there was a new and lengthy flying explanation by Blizzard. Surely some of them would have lend to a good discussion. But if you have 2 or 3 major thread going on, do you need thread 4-10? So they are being locked.

I don't really understand how all can be misread about general discussions on the Blizzard forum. I mean, there is many threads and even many more who's about the same topic. Blizzard reacts to the threads as they see needed of course, some are locked due to it being already on another topic or because users derail it.
Many times a thread can start constructive, but suddenly turn to the worse, where commenting suddenly doesn't support the actual topic.
And I think it would be too much of a trouble to remove the posts that makes it a problem, as well as the ones commenting those posts Vs. just locking the thread.
Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

I wish all the flying threads would get locked and/or moved into one big thread, on MMO I mean. It's annoying when some person thinks his view is important enough that he/she has to make a new thread about it, to go with the 20 others. I don't post on the official forums much so can't relate directly.
