I think the mods are (at the moment) getting a bit too touchy and slightly over-zealous due to us giving up complaints but the fine line hasn't be decided. Which obviously isn't anyone's fault. I kinda figured it might lead to a lot of topics being closed but it'll pass eventually.
I'd imagine the amount of topics being locked would decrese if the amount of posters posting generalizations decreased also.
I Have to agree, that through change there is always an amount of sensitivity, mods trying to choice when to close that envelope exactly, and posters trying to push it as far as they can, it opens a whole tin of worms
Moral of the story check the expire by Date on the tin, cause it can get messy after it opened.
But once or twice we need to check out whats in the tin and deal with the mess, and it is normally cleaned up and forgotten about.
In other words I'm not seeing threads being closed down, I'm also really seeing mods doing their Jobs, but possibly that thread mentioned, got messy, and needed to be locked, I remember one or two mod warnings in the thread, and I could have posted it I wanted to. I only assume as you mention Brut Deluxe is because it was started by a troll, which when I was reading it open certainly read like that.
