    Because it was getting uncivil.

    thank you. can i know whether or not it would be a good idea to keep the uncivilized poster(s) from replying to that thread, while keeping the thread open to the rest of us?

    I'm not following. I can't ban one or more poster(s) from a thread, only from the whole board.

    i mean that the thread could be kept open and the offending posters could be asked not to post there.

    it was an interesting thread except that 1 guy was being a drama queen and we would have figured out to ignore him anyway.

    I hear you mate. That thread was paramount to the future of this message board if not all of humanity.

    Wicked fast ban. Like a McEnroe serve, adjusted for inflation.

    The moderator team decided to get them a little earlier. Seriously though, he was obnoxous and condescending from the onset, and he got particularly obnoxious and condescending towards certain respected posters. So we booted him.
