Good call by a Mod!

There was a thread recently posted about a person asking for money getting smoked by someone in a PSD after they baited that person with a dollar to get them close enough to the truck to degrade them and then smoke them. I watched this and my wife happened to be watching over my shoulder and we were both very disappointed to see that on here. After reading all of the posts before posting my opinion I was pleased to see that most of the rest of us felt the same way. After my post Eric(delewarekingranch) posted with pretty much the same opinion. The thread was then locked by Rwalker29. Thanks Rob for doing that. I feel that your decision was the right thing to do.

WOW. I just watched that. That is absolutely wrong what that guy did. Whatever his opinion on homeless people is, he violated that lady's right to basic human dignity. Good that thread got locked. Not funny.

Cool, works for me. Nice work by all the mods and admins on here.

I actually thought about NOT posting on the aformentioned thread, just so it wouldn't be bumped.

I'm glad it was finally locked........good job Rob!

But remember its a fine line between moderation and sensorship, a line thats kind of hard to walk sometimes.
Especially from an old shoot first and ask questions later redneck like me

I think waht finally got it locked was the attitude with which some were being sarcastic/etc with the way they were replying....

Big Tone - you are correct and that makes it a tough call always... I think locking it is the better route rather than deletion... good job

I hope i didn't offend anyone with my posts on that thread. I don't want any enemies. I was just speaking some truth about people on street corners. But thanks for closing that one cause it was not right in the first place and it got me too fired up.

I'm the same way, and even though my opinion differed from most others I'm also glad it was locked. I just read over it and like a few had stated "there are a lot better intelligent topics" to discuss.

It did seem like that whole thread was going south quick, and I for one am glad there are MOD's on here to keep things decent. I know those of us who post videos and get them pulled (it happened to me a while ago) don't like it at first, but it's in the best interest of eveyone on here and for the continued success of the ORG that this place is monitored.

I don't think anyone will have enemies on here.....We're all here because we have the same things in common... Not everyone is going to have the same opinion on the same topic......
