Wow I am surprised.

Why are these threads locked?

I thought they are good discussion.

exactly, i guess there is a mod who is a dog owner or lover and will not think twice to close any thread that is against them. Wonder why this person can be a mod destroying the reputation of other just moderators

The moderators are not partial towards or against dogs but they do know a troublemaker when they see one. Your disdain of dogs or their owners is not really a big secret, with you even having admitted it yourself.

You created those threads to intentionally rile up the dog owners or those who love dogs in general, and it's not the first or second time that you clashed heads with them. And then insults get thrown in the heat of the moment, which is probably why some members may have received infractions or warnings out from that situation.

Your threads and/or individual posts have to be reported for a moderator to have basis in taking any action. Instead of accusing a moderator of having bias, perhaps it'd be prudent for you to examine your own.

every topic surely have supporters and defenders. I don't understand your point of riling up dog owners. Like this all topics condemning china, iphone users and whatsoever have to be locked!

Just change the subject or topic from dog to something else. Can we request to lock the thread if we don't like the subject?

If there are posts that are offensive or insulting, you should infract the poster. There isn't any need to lock down the whole thread if it is a topic worthy of a discussion.

precisely, the explanation is like if a topic offends a party, it should be locked. Then all the anti pap, iphone users and what not should all be locked as they all rile up supporters of pap, apple and what not.

Is standard practice for us to lock to review the thread when there are many reports.
Thread reopen, offending posts infracted.

Edmw is opposite of PAP - run on populist sentiments one . Even if thread break the law but not enough people report, they won't give a *beep*

Ok this makes more sense than the other mod's reply.
