I understand the reasoning behind it, but I think it may be too strict. I can see locking threads that turn on to chat threads, or turn into Preacherboy bash fests, that's all well and good. But I don't think that every thread should be locked immediatly after the question is answered. It doesn't give everyone a chance to chime in whther they have an opinion, or an answer, or want to ask a related question. To me, the biggest thing it does is takes away some of the fun that was always present in this forum. Which I always viewed as a positive for this place, this was a layed back area where you could get your questions answered and still have a little fun in the process. That's gone now. Now this place is like every other communications forum, just a dull, boring, come in and get out forum. If a topic strays totally off topic, yes, I can see the reasoning behind closing it. But there are a lot of topics that are closed after 6-7 posts. If this was something that was a rule passed down from the big-wigs, that not even you guys (the mods) had input in, fine. But I think it may have warranted a bit of discussion first.
