1. "New Laptop at MWSF"
I did not close this thread. General principle around here states that when a topic which is very vague, and has no information or discussion other than "You heard it here first
" and it's someone's first post, it's generally nothing of substance. Scanning across FH, there are at least 5 other threads this little tidbit could have been posted in. Also, it seemed clear enough to other people that this was a troll to call for the locking of the thread- note the 2nd post therein.
2. "Insane new features" - The post is what is known as a troll, and it gave no value to the discussion. Therefore, I labeled the post, not the person
, as a "worthless troll." Maybe you don't frequent any other forums, but note: this happens everywhere, and is common terminology. ArsTechnica, MacNN, etc.
3. The Angelina Jolie Lips thread was getting racy. When I said 'poised to lock' or whatever, it was my way of saying "clean it up a little guys." Dick Sucking Lips and all is funny, but we don't need to draw it out. Remember also that there are some *very* young children on this board, and that sort of thing is not really appropriate for them. I could have locked it, but I didn't. Not worth complaining about.
4. You think we're too strict? Go anywhere else. Anywhere (that doesn't suck) has an equally strict, if not stricter, rules about off topic posts.
