Yeah, maybe it would have been better just to delete the offensive posts instead of locking the whole thread. And suspend the offenders.

I like the idea: just suspend offenders instead of deleting posts or closing threads. Much simpler for us.

Well I'm happy the mods are finally doing something about this Marion bashing that has been going on for a long time.

But I agree with Lunaris that the thread shouldn't have been locked. There was nothing wrong with it except those posts.

Ok, I did a little clean-up, and re-openned it - but you're all on double-secret probation, and if it gets too ugly, I'll close it.

(and be really mad at you for giving one of my colleagues and excuse to say "I told you so")

Moo.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Re: Reasons for the "cow on ice" thread getting locked

Anyway it is reopened now. I am surprised most of you who are familiar with GM even imagined for half a second that it would stay just fun and decent.

We'll see how it goes.

Judging by the way the AMG match is going, I suspect it's going to turn nasty pretty soon.

This is how you should do it. Just deal with the trolls once and for all. It would save you a lot of work in the future.
Had I been an admin, the GM would have been clean by now.

GM and clean just don't go in the same sentence believe me and it's part of the fun I suppose
