Where have we seen this before?

A mod posts to a thread which is then locked. Hmmmmmmmmm, seems vaguely familiar.

Too bad...

I would have liked the opportunity to have answered DK.

Also, I noticed some creative "pruning". At least one reply from me that violated no rules was deleted for some unknown reason.

It's deja vu all over again. Locking.

There have been several topics on this subject, for anyone who wants to search for them.

I will not go into explanations again (re: there are 20+ other moderators - who now can read posts as they appear in "real time activity", time stamps, how we cannot delete individual posts in a "branch"/subthread without taking them all out) because explanations are not accepted as fact, rather as either a "power grab", bias, or untruths.

I am locking this thread.

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?
