    Come on LT, for real?

    https://tw200forum.com/forum/off-topi...ooting-11.html

    So if eveyone doesn't have the same opinion and get along mindless zombie-like, then no one is allowed to express any opinion at all?

    We should be able to control ourselves and post without swearing or outright insults. When we can't, or chose not to, it is a service rendered to all the rest to have Administrators step in and urge decorum. LT does a good job of this. No argument from me, but then I am guilty of being a notorious thread hi-jacker. While done in fun I imagine I have irritated some by this. Many of us view no hi-jacking as a guideline, not a rule. Likely because we have been permitted to get away with it. Thanks for the tolerance.

    LT is doing exactly what he's expected to do here as a moderator. And in this particular case, I'd say he's done it extremely well. It's never easy to keep hostility and anger out of the communities we operate, particularly if they're allowed to surface from time to time. He allowed that thread to proceed until it became apparent that the members simply couldn't conduct the discussion without lowering bar below the standards the site owners expect of everyone. Once that point has been reached, our moderators and admins have no choice but to step in and rein in the problem. While doing so is likely to incur the wrath of those who feel they were 'silenced', this isn't a "free speech without limit" zone. Our job is to enforce those limits, fairly and equitably. LT did exactly that....he asked, more than once, for everyone to keep the level of discussion up. They couldn't do it, so the thread was locked, as it should have been.

    If you guys need a place to go berserk with hate, rage, extreme viewpoints or anything else controversial, let me refer you to US Message Board - Political Discussion Forum. It's a site owned by the former owners of this forum; and one which, personally, I can't tolerate for more than a post or two. Some of you guys will absolutely love it, and might never come back here!

    Littletommy was a good choice for an Administrator as he already had earned a lot of respect here.

    I think the kind of "thread hijacking" we're more concerned with is, say, a guy selling a part here, and someone jumping into the thread to say "your part is too expensive" or "you can buy it cheaper at *link*", or even "I have one I'll sell you cheaper than the OP". That's the kind of thing that we want to stop; not so much the occasional side-trip into goofy humor or natural conversational progression.
