Wait a minute. Let's break this down.
1.) Skylark closes her thread (which although is bad form, is her right.)
2.) She posts no specific reason for doing so.
3.) I choose to continue a discussion not having anything to do with Skylark or her specific thread.
4.) The "mods" assume (based on what you said with you had no specifc knowledge of why Skylark closed her thread) that I was going against a mod's decision even though I had no idea (and it appears neither did you) what the reasoning was.
5.) Does that mean Synergy's reason that the thread closed was "too heated" was made up?
Skylark then clarified to us that she was closing the thread as an OP -- anyone on the board may have their own thread closed on request. Upon that clarification, we reopened Tame's thread.
Wow. Thank you all for letting me have a discussion with your permission.
We mods are human, and so an occasional misunderstanding will take place. As you will notice, as soon as we found out why Skylark had closed her thread, we remedied this entire situation.
Gee, how about communicating? One PM would have helped (and isn't that standard when closing someone's thread and essentially accusing them of a TOS vioaltion - ie.e ignoring a mod?), although honestly, closing threads on discussion is absurd, and something some of you need to quit doing.
Your explanation answers some of my questions, but not for the better. As far as my accusations about mod bias, you confirmed them.
