Should we lock a thread that has been "resolved"?

Poll ended at 29 Sep 2022, 9:51 am

Yes, to prevent the useless bickering after discussion seems exhausted.

Locking a thread prevents further comments.
Sometimes (I'm being diplomatic) a thread goes off the rails and bickering overwhelms the topic.

edit add for clarity: The thread could be unlocked if need be.

Good Morning Deezer.
If the First Page was jam packed with threads like what you are talking about here then yeah....zap them.
It seems like The Board operates like a Free Market Economy where the value of the topics seek their own level of demand on their own.

every resolve eternal issues moving into each next generation behaving exactly like all historical generations have so far? What is the missing link to intellectual planes being larger than mutually evolving population never same ancestors twice.

Looks like another way to get me cast out of the .net forum. Consensus of people never being honest about actual life govern those determined to silence anyone discussing actual displacement evolving in series parallel displacement ancestrally present now.

That would bury threads that otherwise could consolidate additional information on the same subject as it develops over time.
It would be better for admin to simply eliminate replies that are nonconstructive "bickering" (for example 99.9% of BacVag's replies).
Also claims that are not supported, and particularly ugly are false accusations. Every accusation should be accompanied by reasonable support. Proven false accusation should result in the elimination of the member, at least after 3 strikes.

But the massive volume of nonconstructive posts can make that quite discouragingly difficult to do. Or....."ain't nobody got time fo dat"
Or move the bickering posts to a "bickering" forum category where the bickerers can continue on.

Edit addition: After moving the nonconstructive posts to the "bickering" category, allow posters defend their posts, and if they succeed put them back in the original thread.

Beware chain of command semantics designed to keep persons in charge governing people that are forced to elect lesser of two evils that define humanity next generation as great great grandchildren replace the 30 people making up 93.75% their DNA lived last four generations to their being conceived each generated lifetime forward here now.

Accountability down to DNA combinations here. Time spent evolving since conceived vs time remaining until dead or extinction removes everyone here.

OK. As much as I've tried to avoid it, you taught me once again not to reply to your posts. Though I'm sure I'm not alone in recognizing that removing nonconstructive posts might be a sensitive area for you.

your character role playing career just won't accept the limitations of your ancestral time occupying space in plain sight. You mind what defines social identities cradle to grave, not time spent sustaining numbers per species and ancestral lineages present.

Defend the right to deny how and why life never exceeds occupying space for the duration of your specific reproductive cycle present.

A post that has been debunked, yet repeated 20 times, is not a constructive post because you feel very strongly about it.

No. you know why.... thats the beauty of this place.. The freedom here.
I belong to another forum..  and all the Mods do is LOCK threads.. Move threads.. bann folks. Like a bunch of touchy little babies..
thread off topic- no link- this-that-- it becomes ridiculous.
Teacher landed there when the site org was down.. OH BOY!!!!! You know teacher... With his Horse thread.. You should have seen the fiasco. The mods went into shock.
I helped him out. :lol:   :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

Because your feeble mind has been so compromised by Mass Formation Psychosis and confirmation bias, you no longer have the capacity to understand that just because something is contrary to the propaganda narrative that Big Pharma and their bi*ches indoctrinated you to believe and repeat ad nauseum, does not mean it is "debunked". Your claiming so generally demonstrates your incapacity to think outside of a group and beyond your masters, and willingness to lie and claim something has been "debunked" when it has not been.

When did you debunk the fact that competent clinicians around the world, have enjoyed up to 99+% success in early treatment of COVID-19 through cheap, generic, multi-drug/nutraceutical protocols, ever since March of 2020?

Like Tyson and Fareed who have now treated over 12,000 COVID patients with effectively 100% success in those that showed up for treatment on a timely basis.
Overcoming the COVID-19 Darkness: Two Doctors Successfully Treated 7000 Patients

Now before you reply remember, that just because you're willing to lie or falsely accuse and claim something is debunked, does not make it so.

Who makes the determination if it has been resolved?
