No offense ugriffin. But I have not received any warnings. I just come back to the forum to find post removed or locked. I'm just not use to this and it's frustrating. I've been using computers since the 80's and been online since it's availability and have never been on a forum that was ruled by such an iron fist, so to say.
I can see your warn level, you know?
I don't care about your computer usage history, I care about your current behaviour. You're essentially complaining left and right, calling the mods immature, and then complaining we've got it wrong. I'm not going to argue with you, but if I want to I can and will warn you: there's gotta be a first for everything, right?
The point here is that if you think these forums are so badly managed, or so authoritarian, or dystopian, you can leave. You won't be missed, don't worry.
For example, just because a topic is solved doesn't mean it has to locked. An issue may come back later and it would be nice to use the same topic. Also, as I see it, as long as a topic is not vulgar or hateful, there's no need to delete post. Forum members should be able to talk about what's on their mind, whether it be good or bad. If some people don't like the topic, then don't reply. Also, just because a topic is an old topic, doesn't mean someone shouldn't be able to respond to it. It's just like history in school. We need to be able to talk about past and current events to make something better in the future.
Anyways... If members on a forum can not discuss with what they have on their minds, resolve their own issues new and old, then what is the forum for?
This forum is for discussion, until people like you derail topics.
That and if I hadn't complained about the help desk issue as others did too, it wouldn't be fixed now.
If you think complaining without offering solutions fixes the problem, you've got issues, mate.
Ah, and since I'm so immature I will be locking this.
