It seems locking threads by some OPSs is used to censore other members with complaints and to stifle freedom of speech.  I think locking of a thread should only be allowed by moderators in case of pointless trolling.

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

How else can Forum Cry-Babies 'Hit-n-Run' without being able to lock a thread after getting in (what they perceive as being) the LAST word ?

Thread Locking shows who squats to pee and who can actually maintain civil communication without meltdowns, resulting in running away.

100% agreed, I see a lot of companies do it after a person points out a flaw in what they are trying to do!

Locking doesn't prevent you from expressing your thoughts. Just create a new thread.

When someone locks a thread because of something I Troll'd said, then I know I have been effective in Trolling expressing my views Wink

In some cases it can potentially be misleading for people who find the first thread via a search and aren't aware of the other thread.

good to see the discussions haven't changed much, if a thread is of significant enough importance a moderator is usually resonable enough to unlock it

I agree, especially when a lot of disinformation is being moved around.  I think it is fine if the OP requests to the moderators to lock the thread for a good reason.  If it is a lame reason then the mods can deny the request.
