Over 9 says - OK, I'll leave this up for a while so everyone can see your reply, but then I'm ending this one too. EVERYONE, People are getting tired of all the negativity on BC lately. Time to reign it in a little. Over 9 this is not meant to be an exstention of a previously terminated thread but a point on the closing of a thread. You're really taking sides here. You the moderator are making a decision that the thread has no value and should be closed. those posting there disagree with your asessment. Other posters really have a choice. If they think the thread is too negative then they simple need to stop reading it and stop participating in it. Forgive me but I may be a little sensitive on this topic. I had my wife attacked here and then had the thread closed before I could get adequate compensation. to me it looked like the forces here were protecting those that attacked my wife. I'm sure it was not the intent but thats how it looked. Especially since one of those that alibied the attacks on my wife was the one that begged the moderator to close the thread down before I could get a word in edgewise. If you're going to close a thread then you should at the least let both parties of whatever argument is taking place have the last say before you do so.
