why lock the thread? are you guys afraid to hear peoples' opinions on how you choose to run things? I think you should hear what some of us have to say....after all this is the feedback section...geez Guidelines on Language and Attitude: Foul or hostile language will not be tolerated on Physics Forums. This includes profanity, obscenity, or obvious indecent language; direct personal attacks or insults; snide remarks or phrases that appear to be an attempt to "put down" another member; and other indirect attacks on a member's character or motives. Please treat all members with respect, even if you do not agree with them. If you feel that you have been attacked, and the moderators or mentors have not yet gotten around to doing something about it, please report it using the "Report" button. If you choose to post a response, address only the substantive content, constructively, and ignore any personal remarks. It is better to walk away from a possible confontation and come back later with constructive arguments. So what do we do when the moderators are the ones putting down other members??
