Look at the responses. It was being spammed. I'm not sure how you interpret those responses, but in my humble opinion, "*Gurgle*" is not really a productive use of Spidweb's disk space and bandwidth.

Arancaytar: Every time you ask people to compare TM and Kel, you endanger the poor, fluffy kittens.
Smoo: Get ready to face the walls!
Ephesos: In conclusion, yarr.

Agreed with Kel. I locked it on the basis of spam. I didn't even watch the video so I don't even know what was on it. Are you accusing me of something?

And that would be all.

A reasonable question by *i
Are you accusing me of something?
Well, the topic's last post appeared to be geared toward conversation. Perhaps that's why he/she was upset about its short life.

Albus Dumbledore quoted this, yet I don't know of its origins.

And that would be all.

Which is why TM should stay banned.

All right, that's enough.

For your information, the topic in question was discussed at length on the Moderator Board. There was unanimous agreement to my suggestion that it was a failure as a debate topic because instead of an issue it presented flamebait.

Let me demonstrate an analogy:

Do you believe George W. Bush is doing a good job as a president?
Don't you agree that Bush is a moron who should be fired?
However, I refrained from locking it because of my POV and also because the flamewar was only in potentia. It had received only a single reply and was well on its way to sinking naturally without needing any intervention.

Then it turned out that ("*drool* *gurgle*) it didn't, and Stareye locked it.


I am just saying the above because it's extremely irritating to spend many hours of free time looking after these boards and actually making sure that the intervention that does happen is justified and well-grounded, and then being told you suck at it. Yada yada, yes we're all actually merciless dictators (especially *i), but unlike some people we are not pushing a political agenda.

And now, goodbye.
