A request for the locking/deleting of a thread

To the admin team,

Is it possible for you to take a look at a thread entitled "Lindsay Back to # 4" in the Tower of Power forum? I would say it needs locking/deleting if possible. I hope you would agree with me as it has created some bad air over in the Tower of Power forum.

It would be most appreciated, thanks,

I agree that this thread should be closed/locked. The baiting/trolling in the TOP forum has increased over time, and I think that a moderator should be assigned to it in order to control this in the future.

I've locked it.

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

But its a symptom. jacs' eloquent post in That Thread:

Dear TOPs,

First of all, I am sorry that I have not been here earlier. But anyway...

I have always been proud of the fact that we TOPs (most anyway) don't act like most fans out there who would throw nasty words at each other at the slightest provocation. This thread comes to me as a surprise.

I don't find what I am seeing here funny. In fact, I find it apalling.

This goes to all of us and not just within this forum. I would hope do not personally attack your fellow poster just because he or she is just giving her opinion. And in turn do not take objective criticism as personal attacks if they really aren't.

It is also advised that you do not readily respond to every negative thing that is said to you. In other words, if you choose between making another personal attack (thereby provoking another attack and so forth, furthering the inanity of the conversation) and keeping quiet, choose the more mature, significantly better latter.

The Tower Of Power clan (and forum) was created as a place where fellow fans can happily share ideas, feelings, etc about Lindsay and not as a place to have pointless fights with your fellow TOP.

.....points up something important, relevant esp. to GM. Trolls get banned. Flamethrowers don't. Why? Perhaps because (as tennis sites and magazines remain addicted To This inactive Russian to generate attention) this site does To Those who "generate more heat than light" (to create a maximum volume of posts and pageviews).
