Why did it take 40 responses for [Link: remotecentral.com] to be closed? I argued early on that it was a real person but it was convincingly argued that it was a spammer.

Maybe two or three posts after that, it could have/should have been moved to the Marketplace and then beaten to death there.

And 112 responses to [Link: remotecentral.com], where it's recommended that Bruce be totally banned? That one went off the rails WAY before it was closed!

If you're going to close or move a thread, just wait for a half dozen or so ridiculous comments or comments calling for it to be moved. Then move the damn thing.

because people complain when I close threads prematurely.. and then they complain when I let things play out. I'll be sure to move your off topic threads like this once more quickly if thats what you like.

If you would close ALL threads as soon as they are begun I would have a lot more free time.

Go Impaqt! Now you have got this!
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.

Any threads ever get locked in Everything Else? Or is this a challenge of some sort?

I assume he wants to replace me so all threads can just spiral out of control and never get locked in the first place.

Presumably the irony of their not posting here, where only Daniel has sway, has not been lost on you.
