No. You've been in TPM Forum as long as I have, you know the history, you know why the threads were created. I agree with Jeff. Having two big sanctuaries like that in a forum inherently creates at least the appearance of division within that forum, if not division itself. Then this is simply a case of mis-information. No offense meant. Simply read through those threads and you will see that many of the regulars of the TPMDF and the Sanct get along OK. Regulars from the two groups co-exist peacefully, and some are friends. Some don't get along, true, but read the posting styles of those who don't. They take strong, confrontational views about what their opinions. This attitude, though admittedly within the TOS, generates conflict. These attitudes will also remain if the threads were locked, because they are generated by individual personalities, not threads.
