Do you put the little red padlock icon keys in a safe place...and have you ever had second thoughts about unlocking a padlock?

And I though 'I' tested peoples patience to the limit on here? ~

The order will be Yes, No and quickly followed by a padlock

I agreed with the padlock that appeared today. FE. Please do not have second thoughts.

Though I fully understand why the FE locked the thread I was sorry it did not reach the magic 100 posts, which over eleven years of membership I fervently hoped would happen one day. Never mind, I'll have to try harder next time! :) TC.

As the 'bully' who presumably was the reason the thread got padlocked, I want to apologise, sincerely, to you, for missing your 'ton'.

As has been suggested by other posters, I will cease from posting, and hence not 'threaten' any delicate member any longer! Good luck to you all.

Please do not go. Good debate is interesting even with those with whom one disagrees. Maybe one has to avoid going OTT on occasions. Please reconsider and remain here.

'...I was sorry it did not reach the magic 100posts, which over eleven years of membership I fervently hoped would happen one day.'

It never occurred to me that members kept notes of targets for their threads to achieve, is their something underhand going on here? It there a spoiler element amongst our membership? Should be have a more severe permanent blackballing option for members to vote over with the more severe cases of impropriety? Or should we retain the FE's current dictatorial style rule? Or should we have a full investigation by OFFmag and arbitrarily accept their recommendations?

...so many questions.
