I'm generally in favor of refraining from locking threads as well, unless they're spam of course. Even if the thread is kind of a nonsense topic I feel that it has just as much right to be open as anything else.

I feel the same way, generally. I rarely lock threads... most of the threads I have ever locked were spammy.

I have seen the ban-from-thread feature used on another forum. (On me. For a weird reason, a rule specific to that site.) If it can be implemented here for proper usage, try it. But from what I've seen, it's not one-on-one fights that are a problem; it is usually multiple people against one. If people are chronically starting fights, more than banning from threads needs to be done. Sometimes the attacking is a response to suspected trolling.[/venting]
I think you need to have a little fun once in a while. Try this chill pill for starters

I've refrained from weighing in against your comments in this part of the site for a very long time because I've always respected you and your opinion even when I didn't agree with it. Thanks for letting me know the respect wasn't mutual. I'll be sure to take the gloves off from now on.
Charming.

My post wasn't way off-topic and addressed the root of the issue. If you don't want hostility, change your approach. For example, be open-minded to the suggestions of people like Ki. There aren't enough good discussions. Shutting down threads (officially or with derision) discourages attempts at conversation by those involved and onlookers.

You are being a total hypocrite. You don't want people to be hostile towards you but you are being hostile towards others expected special treatment.

I was being nice before, you are an awful member. I probably am too since I rarely contribute to music discussion, but I don't try to drag MB down with my tyrannical views of how things should be run either.

Do everyone including yourself a favor and find a place more conducive to your personality.

Insulting as always I see. Not the best way to get people to listen to you.

I'm very open to Ki's suggestions and have expressed no objection to them whatsoever. Generally speaking I'm not in favor of locking threads and in fact it's extremely rare for me to do so. Of course you'd know this if you actually bothered to read the thread you're posting in.

I didn't call anyone names, nor ignore everything they said in favor of such rudeness. And I've never criticized anyone for starting a thread on this site. In general, I mean as a life skill, sincerely listening to people and trying to find points to appreciate or agree with do wonders.

As always, you really need to take a look in the mirror here.
