Then Longo just silences the conversation, like any true corrupt politician who doesn't want to hear the truth. You're a mod, you have the power to lock threads, good for you. But that doesn't mean you have to cut off people from discussing something that you happen to disagree with. If I had known GR was less about expressing one's opinion and more about totalitarianism I would've never came back in the first place. Maybe Nick had something else he wanted to contribute? Maybe someone who hasn't seen the thread yet felt they needed to say something? Maybe you could've given a warning that you were going to close it? But instead you lock it with an iron fist. Can I expect a conversation to come out of this? Or shall I be ignored, locked, deleted and perhaps even banned?
