*has posted a thread demanding proof that the world is NOT run by a handful of conspirators, angrily closed down the thread when he couldn't argue against anything posted in it*

This is false. I closed it down because people were only addressing semantic loopholes and not the argument at hand.

Why don't you take the conversation over there? Nobody is interested.

Arguing to you is when you type "GOVERNMENT BAD, FREE MARKET GOOD" a hundred times over until two or three other conspiracy theorists here agree with you. You don't actually argue, you just post things you think as you mumble to yourself in your room between Alex Jones shows that have little to know basis in reality and then close a thread when no one agrees with you.

I think Atlas meant "semantic loopholes" so I Google Image the phrase and found SA goons hanging out:

Keeps out the riff raff if one would have to pay it seems.

Eight, now nine, posts on this thread and it ain't locked yet. What gives? BTW, I clicked the SA link provided by the OP, when back a couple pages and starting reading forward. I did so after I posted my image post above, not prior. A very interesting and humorous read. There's a couple-three pages dedicated to the Hub Theatre in Rochelle, first mentioned on this forum.

You should open up the contest again.  Set up clear rules and put the reward in escrow with someone you trust so you can't be accused of bias in the final decision.

He tried, a while back. And then got banned for his behavior. I suppose part of the deal is you pay $10 to keep out the riff raff, AND you actually have to post something of substance.

That should be all the argument ammunition anyone needs.

The whole point of the forum is riff raff only.

Damn! SA is currently closed to nonmembers. I was going to read a couple pages. The other day I started on 106 and stopped at 109. I want to see have the story ends.

Register. My understanding is the publicly available portions rotate. You don't risk much by getting an account and never posting...

I've thought of that, but didn't want to risk ostracization from this group for doing such.

I personally think you should quit closing your threads.

Regardless of your reasoning for doing so, I think it's almost unanimous that to everyone else it seems as though you close a thread when you don't like the direction it heads. That sort of "this conversation is over" attitude is not conducive to free and open discussion, and only serves to make you look like a spoiled kid who's losing a game, so he takes his ball and goes home.

If it turns into a personal-attacks troll fest, closing a thread is warranted - but I think moderators are more than capable of doing that, I don't believe users need the rights to close their own threads outside the market forums.

If you post an idea that sounded good on the toilet or on your morning commute or whatever, and people come back with reasons why it won't work, the thread needs to play out to it's logical conclusion. Just because someone doesn't like your idea or doesn't think it will work doesn't mean they're trolling.

I never close a thread simply because people don't prefer my idea or have purportedly disproven it.

That's not from people legitimately addressing the topic at hand. I locked them because people were only attacking my character or just being silly. I stand by my original statement.
