Wouldn't it make sense to keep this thread open until everything is fully resolved? Locked threads often give off the appearance of finality, and perception counts for a lot, particularly on an internet message board True, but the thread had basically been resolved. The administration had their say. The members just moved onto little debates that werent doing anything to resolve any outstanding matters. LMM had not given any real indication he was going to say something. The thread therefore had no real purpose anymore. But now...LMM shouldnt has opened it to say something. although perhaps LMM should have only opened it until he was actually ready to post.
