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

Discussion is locked

i'll leave you to do the math.

in the meantime, unless you can prove that the mod who posted was the mod who locked, please, keep the snide remarks to youself

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.
