I am very distressed about your reaction to the reputation threads:
Locked? YOU don't like that a tiny minority don't like your grand scheme to Googleize the forums so you're going to lock the threads?
Now personally I'm against it. I'm a cantancerous opinionated old man who believe's as I've said before, that a gentleman who doesn't know a spade from a shovel is a moron and should be told so to his face. I am a genuinly unlikable guy. I don't think I'm going to score so well on your new reputation, but that's not why I'm against it. I've already given my opinion on that subject in the LOCKED thread shown above if anybody cares.
While I'm against it, I'm certainly not so upset by it that I was thinking of leaving the community.
Censorship, on the other hand... Silencing the voices of the minority when they dissent?
That's another matter entirely. Now I'm not so sure this is the place for me any more.
