....then you'd think they would have locked it as soon as you posted ''you cant see past your blinders geesh you really are something else.''

Maybe we're seeing media bias of a different kind here. I look forward to an explanation from the mod who locked it.

Josh, though yours was the last post, it might not be the one that caused the heartburn. Sometimes the heartburn takes a while to ferment before you have to take the Maalox, and it wasn't necessarily the last thing you ate that is causing the gas.

There will be a policy statement coming soon.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
