    who closed the "attractive people" threads and why?

    I don't get it. Can anyone offer an explanation?

    Those were two of the most popular threads ever on this board...why would anyone close something that so many people were interested in?

    Too political?

    Actually, there was a semi-heated exchange on one of the threads.

    On the other one, some people disagreed with the whole discussion, and rather than simply verbalize their disagreement or ignore the thread, they though it necessary to shut the whole thing down and prevent everyone else from enjoying it.

    Ridiculous. Somebody wanting to flex their muscle, I guess. Too bad...resembles communism.

    I guess you could re-start them over here:

    I didn't close the threads, but this comment is out of line. Communism? Get real. If you've got a problem with what happened take it up with Boss or GIK instead of whining about it.

    Btw, they were the most popular threads on Redszone ever? Try again.

    Geez. Calm down. Whining? Whatever.

    Btw...read what I wrote again...two of the most popular...

    I'd say that over 2,300 views in less than three days would make it pretty darn popular.

    What seems to have happened is that one person decides for the group what should or should not be posted on the board...that's bogus. Obviously a LOT of people found the threads entertaining. One person doesn't like it so it gets closed? THAT's what resembles communism.

    Wasn't me - honestly I didn't follow that thread - but I'm sure whomever closed it did so with reason. Like R4L said, if you ever have any issue with the site the best course of action is to PM either myself or Boss and we'll get back to you with a response as quickly as possible.

    Just curious. It seemed weird that fun, harmless, VERY popular threads like those would get closed.

    BTW, you admins and mods do a great job overall...thanks!

    Re: who closed the "attractive people" threads and why?

    One more thing...if you're closing a thread, why not write as the last post, who you are and why you're closing it?

    There should be some accountability that goes with power.

    Just to close it with no reason for doing so and not identifying yourself just seems bush.

    That just my take. FWIW

    I don't really care one way or the other, but perhaps when a thread is closed the mod could post a reason. Not only would it keep people from being in the dark as to why a thread is closed, it might deter people from making the same "mistake" again.

    Just a suggestion.

    My point exactly. In fact, it's a no-brainer to do so.
