Usually they've gotten out of control with 2 or more people bickering about something that doesn't apply to the original topic OR at the original posters 'request.

If one of yours has been locked you can message one of the mods and probably find out why.

Thanks.  My topic on transfer bar removal liability was locked, and some of the replies removed.  I have to say I never saw any rule violations in any of the responses, and the info exchange was IMHO worthwhile.  

-----Whatever.  

I guess different people view things in different ways.

You may have missed some. There are two that disagree with each other that get kind of heated at times. The topic seemed to have run its course so it was locked.

DDD..

The reason you never saw any rules violations might be because 

the moderator might have already removed them..:mellow:

l was reading that post/topic and read it.. Read all the arguments.. :huh:

I feel it also ended in cowpokes arguing their points and NOT wanting

to see anyone else's..

 

Rance ;)

Thinkin' I was kinda glad it got locked

before anyone got kicked off :)

This seems to no longer be the case, as a thread I started on the TG Forum and asked to be locked was locked; then, unlocked.

As, I read it, the locking had nothing to do with you. See Tyrel's post, following.

well when you tell someone off on a private line then try to BS your way by " I didn't mean no offense to no one" and get called out on it publicly yeah the thread was done. 
Smokestack did the right thing and Capt numb skull should be avoided at all cost. 

 

IMO, this is an example of a post that should be removed (hidden) as a personal attack against Capt.

Name calling is what got the other thread locked. Capt. is just fine in my opinion. I do not agree with removal of a hammer block safety but that does not make him an idiot or a numb skull.

 

Agree 100%.

Thanks everyone.  My question is answered at this point.  I am just new to this and was wondering if I misbehaved.  With Devil for a middle name, that possibility had to be given fair consideration.

The logic that posting a screenshot of the words someone typed out all on their own and sent to you, as somehow being a personal attack is not something I can get my head around. 

There was a disagreement on that thread about how a Ruger works. We were unable to come together on that subject and that’s Ok. One party took the others posts as somehow personally insulting I guess and escalated the situation and tried to turn it ugly. That’s unfortunate, but we all have bad days and we have all said things that we didn’t truly mean. This may or may not be the case here, but I personally don’t harbor any bad feelings towards him as I am sure he is a good guy. The typed word is often not the best means of communicating, particularly when emotions get involved. IMO, the mods did the right thing by locking that thread.

Question answered. No further discussion needed..

 

This is an example of how threads get locked... 

 

Question answered, Original Poster happy with answers, and a lot of off topics posts, and unnecessary comments.
