First , mods 'have' been thanked unless you mean not being paid.
I honestly don't understand how it's more work to delete a post
or 2 than it is to lock and entire thread. (not being facetious)
Obviously there are threads that spiral out of control, we've all
seen them, but when one comment gets a thread locked it's aggravating.
Not the end of the world , just aggravating.
This is not picking a fight with mods, after all, there are 8 of you guys
OK my point's been made so I'll shut up if everyone else will.
