Just one question...

    What is the reasoning behind closing this thread:
    I found the topic interesting and compelling, but now it's closed to reply.
    I just don't get it!

    I think it was closed with good reason.

    It seemed to be becoming a very emotional topic.

    Many people appeared to have been hurt and they all seemed to want to vent in that thread. They could have gone around in circles for days.

    I think I get your point, WryLilt, but isn't it appropriate to have a place here in the forums to engage in venting?  The topic certainly is HP related, and there are some who need to communicate their frustrations to other Hubbers, you know what I mean?

      your point is valid but why other's left is mere presuming or interpretation...

    Maybe, but I have a feeling that there was a lot of borderline rule breaking in the thread and it wouldn't surprise me if some of the things in that thread were counted as 'personal attacks'.

    I think once you post a picture of an angry puppy it's all over smile

      I was just in the process of sipping my coffee when I saw your post here, UW - and I actually did the thing  that I've always thought was only something people do on television - spray a little the coffee I was drinking because your post made me laugh.  (Now I know when those comedians do that, it's something people really do.  smile  )

      (I found that thread eye-opening, and not in a good way.  I don't know...    If people found it hurtful (and some did), I suppose it should have been closed.  Then again, though, I think there's something to be said for letting "the public" see some of the stuff that can go on here.    It looks to me like a lot of people are too naive and too trusting online than is good for them (and I don't mean when it then comes to offline life; I mean even when it comes to what they do/post on here). 

      I kind of think a thread like that can be "the voice of the people" (or at least SOME of "the people" and some of the sockpuppets), and I don't think it's such a bad thing if a thread or two gets to exist, where people get to bring their own version of some of these "doings" to light on here.  (But I'm just thinking in terms of any impact on me, not in terms of what's good for any of those people who found the thread hurtful.)   hmm

    The Thread is STILL ALIVE at the Blog site lol

    But most people that have added to their thread don't like HP hmm

    Maybe the thread was closed here because it was interpreted as being a Big Tit for a Small Tat? hmm big_smile
