What point may I ask does this forum serve if those who wish to ask questions/have discussions can't due to forum trolls getting threads locked.
Is it the case that If I don't like a thread I can simply start trolling? How pathetic and sad.

Usually starts with post 1. Pathetic and sad were poor choices for words for questions or a discussion.

IBTL possibly?

So close...

Something tells me this thread will be locked as well.
And you might just get something extra out of it.

Eve's "cold and harsh" universe caters to the scum of all the other games, forums are the same. Figure out the rest yourself.

Posting in a dying thread.

Because I care.

Do you smell what the Lock's cooking?

We lock certain threads because they have gone from being useful and constructive to filled with posts you have to slog through to actually get anywhere. Or they were bad to begin with and the OP should feel bad.

Or if they break a whole bunch of rules. Like discussing forum moderation.

Like this one.
