I think (?) I can speak for everyone with 'mod power' when I say that locking a thread is usually an absolute last resort.


Which shows, as I see it, a lack of imagination, or at least a poor understanding of escalation of force on behalf of everyone involved.

If "Doing nothing" was Zero, and "Exterminatus via orbital bombardment" was a 99 - then locking a thread, in terms of application of force, would probably rate, possibly, a one.

I understand it's 2019, and there's a bit of princess-and-pea about many things where the smaller and more irrelevant the issue, the greater the irritation and rage, but try to maintain a bit of context where you can ;)

No one's paying me to be creative ;) . Often I try to gain context before any sort of action an in most cases there is no reason to act but in 1 out of 1000 posts I gotta do something. Most times this means PMing the offender to sort it out sometimes it means group time out lol. I would say thread lock is more like a 3 or 4, orbital bombardment being 2 and resingularing the universe 5. 99 is ceasing all existence which I will do if you kids don't quiet down back there :)

Mods can use orbital bombardment? How could a person theoretically become a mod..?

Gotta buy that sweet space cruiser (Brick) or invest in the Star Wars defense satellite system (Myself started construction 3 years before I was born) :)

I prefer Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Berine Brainns Inc. though Lord Buckethead is a large contributor to that coperation from my understanding :)

Yea, I was just going to say... If escalating beyond all measure is extermination by orbital bombardment and locking a thread is almost as insignificant as doing nothing at all, just what is the suggestion here? Like what is the appropriate, proportional response, in your opinion, JS, to the "sutuation", exactly? 20? 4? 0.062? And what sort of action does that correspond to?

We all do the same thing in the sense that we take our behavior patterns with us everywhere we go. The natural assumption is that people respond to us based on who we are but in reality, people respond to us based (mostly) on how we behave. In my opinion, i was handling the situation perfectly; doing my best not to be insulting or condescending or aggressive (for me), i was endeavoring to show Fyxe how some of the reactions he was experiencing were associated with some specific behaviors that he has been repeating. In other words, i was attempting to be a medium of actual conflict resolution and growth. Locking the thread only exacerbated this process.

No it isn't. Only the immature must provoke uncomfortability when honesty arises.

So? Control your emotions. It's a difficult task, and we all (myself especially) fail sometimes, but it's an important lesson at this Temple.
