Why is my thread locked? #2

  1. Jun 20, 2008 #1
    The reasons a thread is locked aren't always justifiable or obvious. The reason I posed this rather than PMd it is because it is very rare for me to get a repsonse from a moderator when I send them a PM. For instance; the thread on uncertainty was locked the other day by ZapperZ. I had PMd him a question concerning why and asked if I could discuss the same matter in the other thread on the same topic. I got no response whatsoever.

    If you moderators want us to PM you then you shouldn't ignore the PMs and not respond. You need to take responsibility for your actions and not be shy about explaining your justification. How else are we supposed to determine what not post in order for a thread not to be locked?
