    I understand that from time to time threads have to be moderated, some to the point of being locked. My question is, why was the I Promise, ( http://www.browncafe.com/forum/f6/i-promise-334908/index2.html ) thread locked? It seemed to be going alright and then all of a sudden it was locked. Was it a mistake, maybe? Maybe a moderator inadvertantly locked this thread? Can someone please check this out for me?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I just quickly went through the link Steve provided and found nothing IMO that should have closed it. I am also curious as to why it was closed.

    I've unlocked a couple of locked threads lately. I'm starting to wonder if they're locking themselves..

    Perhaps we need to dig deeper. Maybe there's a cipher in that thread that when finished it could unleash something as strange as Freakazoid.

    Or assume a mod is being goofy and trying to ruin good fun.

    Isn't there a moderation record that shows who preformed what moderation action? I know on other forums I've had mod access to there has been, but it might not be viewable by mods, but higher up in this case.

    That thread is unlocked now. I didn't see anything that was deleted out of it by the other mods, and I couldn't tell why it used to be locked. Post away.

    I opened it somehow, I saw nothing real bad, I think it was a flook. If I was in error, please relock, I could not tell who closed it.

    It gets pretty bad when a mod starts thinking about moderating other mods! Maybe this thread needs to be locked...

    This Sunday, join the Brown Cafe where the mods will slug it out in a no holds barred cage match to the death to determine the true Greatest Mod of all Time!!!

    With special guest appearances by that lurker that no one knows about, the smug supervisor, the uppity driver, and the overconfident steward!

    Why was the Robert Schimmel thread locked? Did it get out of control that fast or was he too controversial for BC?
