C-3P0, you said the following "I for one was extremely dissappointed when a prominent member of the Basher's Sanctuary was made the TPM mod. For the life of me I don't understand why anyone who dislikes TPM would become mod for that forum. I feel that the TPM board became a "basher only" haven. I truly felt that my postive opinions of TPM in that forum were unwanted" You say it's a "basher only" haven, you disapprove of any bashers modding in that forum, and you felt the bashers ruined the forum by forcing out positive opinions of the film. Then you say that you don't have anything against the bashers. I'm not buying it. "I haven't posted regularly in over a year." Then you also have no idea what the atmosphere is like in the TPM forum at the moment. You can't testify from recent experience that you felt positive comments were unwanted. You are talking about what you observed a year ago. Moreover, one of the threads they are advocating removing is one devoted to positive opinions and discussion about the film. One that bashers don't come in and harass people. They don't argue with the participants or insult them for liking TPM. Bashers aren't forcing everyone with a positive opinion out of the forum. Some of them are even supporting the DF's right to be in the forum. One more time, there could easily be individuals who call themselves a gusher or a basher that are breaking the TOS and harassing people. And those people, as always, should be dealt with. But locking the threads will not discourage those people. It won't make them change their attitudes, behavior, biases, etc. It would instead be punishing large groups of people for something they aren't doing.
