Their site, their rules. Cheers.
I don't know but there seems to be alot of controversy in these cnet forums. I don't know why people have such big problems here. Like some guy was yelling at me for calling someone else dumb because he opened an email that said it was from the FBI but which in turned out to be a virus. I mean really do we all have time to get angry at each other over what we type in cnet forums??? Look how childish that seems. Also I have a question, how are these moderators chosen, it seems to be anyone who has posted in over a thousand posts can be a moderator. Moderators have the power to lock posts??? that seems a little unfair, what if these moderators abuse their new found powers??? Oh well there are much bigger things in life like LOCKING PEOPLES POSTS OR DELETING THEM, for which I can't stand. Let people type whatever they want; it is on technology and software for gods sake, not something like helping a convict kill someone. I don't think in thought_stazi's post he was hurting anyone and therefore shouldn't be deleted. I don't know what thought_stazi said but I agree on what he or she said in response to Mark locking up his or hers post. Peoples post should not be locked/deleted for no reason and we have freedom here (U.S.A.) like the FREEDOM OF PRESS. Where would this country be without freedom, that is what this country is built on; freedom. Besides I think there are alot BIGGER problems in this world then a guy or gal just posting a post. If MarkFlax can lock a postand deleted, why doesn't he help some homeless people in a soup kitchen? We can do alot more than fight on some tech website. As I mentioned earlier, peoples posts shouldn't be locked or deleted because that is their opinion. If this post gets locked, then I will try my best to become a moderator.
