Im just curious as to why certian threads are being locked. There have been several instances where I get a notice in my email and there are a lot of excellent points raised and when i go to comment on them i find that the thread is locked. Including the one that i just started today. Now I just want to know what the purpose is of an internet forum to start a dialogue on a certian subject only to have it locked by moderators. It doesn't seem quite condusive to free speech or even a sharing of opinions for that matter. I can totally understand if there is something ridiculous going on, flames and things of that nature, however regular threads with good talking points being closed....why? Respectfully, EricK please respond in my inbox if possible.
