OK so now I've had a discussion made Read Only.

I wasn't even a member of PR (I let my membership linger for a few months while having DS2) while the so called horrible discussion on who knows what was going on that made people leave the site.
I have no idea what it was about, who was involved and yes I am sad to see some of the original PR members gone, but does that mean that everyone that dares bare an opinion from now on gets made read only and their discussions closed?

Edited to say, I only realised it was read only when I tried to post to apologize for putting my foot in it, then I got annoyed I didn't even get a chance to do that.

I was a little startled by that also. The previous discussion definitely had a different emphasize (& tone). I stayed out of that one! The thread you had started really had already made it's point, though: a review should be a review and not merely a link. Which the vast majority are. So perhaps that is why it was closed, with concern it might devolve?

I don't think that previous discussion had much to do w/ some folks not coming 'round here any more, although I don't know that for certain.

As for threads being made read-only, as far as I know the rule of thumb is still general discussions good, insults bad. Which is why I was startled that the other thread was closed, since it seemed fine to me.

Lou, I didn't see your original thread, but I think you made an excellent point. Anne, I agree with your assessment about the previous discussion. You know how to read between the lines.

It seemed fine to me, too - I guess it was just a "preemptive strike" in case things began to go downhill. But with new people joining every day there's bound to be those who weren't around for the previous discussion, so why not let them talk about it?

The reason I locked the thread is because there is a great thread there already where people can give constructive opinions on how others can improve their reviews.

I have merged the locked thread into this thread.

ThinkGeek: "E-mail has been around since before computers. At first, e-mails were written on rocks and thrown at neighbors. CC-ing a rock e-mail could be dangerous for an entire village. Then, e-mails were written on paper and put in weird paper things called envelopes and the postal system delivered them. This was slow. Finally, e-mail as we know it came around."
