There was quite a bit of foolishness going on near the end of that thread. But it raises a question.

If there is a thread that people don't like, is it only necessary to get a few people to collude in derailing it to get it closed?

I would think that it would be just as easy to delete the offending comments (the ones where people are calling each other vile names) as it is to close a thread. In that case people who are having a serious discussion (as serious as can be expected in cyberspace) can continue.

But then again, I am not a mod and am not privy to what they can and can't do so I'm sure that they have their reasons for not taking that approach.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Some say that youth is wasted on the young. I disagree. I think that wisdom is wasted on the old. All you can do is give it away and the ones that need it want no part of it. Especially those you are closest to. Raymond Reddington
