Locked threads

I think the locked thread at every "potential" is going a little overboard. :roll: I am not saying in any way that I am not appreciative of what one does. I will probably get blasted and locked for this "argumentative opinion" but oh well. :?

In past a "respected member" made the statement that the only way one could "rant" on something that bothered you anymore on this site was if you were a moderator, they seem to be allowed. :roll: he was right

Go ahead you have my attention. Although I don't know which threads you are reffering too that I was ranting about that wasn't locked and should have been? (Please post a link to the thread) It's is obvious you just want to complain so go ahead complain. I'm feeling froggy I'll jump! Let's get this in the open.

If you want to talk about this out in the open then talk. I have not recieved one email from you stating your feelings. The only time you ever make your oppinion known is in threads like this. So it's your time to shine give us your oppinion, I won't lock it as long as it doesn't go political or religious.

So does that mean I should lock this one after further thought in your mind? Because according to what you just said if I was to play along with you it would appear that the last statement was correct.

But it's not though so I am not worried about.

Jones - I'm thinking it was the "gasoline price" rant. I am just making the "opinon" that I think you are going a little overboard or maybe a little anxious . just my 02 cents.

In Jones defense I have been locked once. I tend to bring out others emotions for better or worse.

IMO this one of the greatest sites anywhere PERIOD :!: :!: :!: :!:

Ok this one?
https://www.460ford.com/viewtopic.php?t=22283

I started out asking why? Why is not political or religous? Then as you notice it turned political and I had to lock it? I tried not to let it turn political but it did.

Heck I was getting my man hood busted for people thinking I was complaining about my truck.

No, this is diesel owners complaining about diesel prices and the decisions of owning a diesel when your life style might not warrant a diesel for everyday living.

Skolser, I would like to keep this non political. So please do not post political remarks.


PS. I erased your political remark in hopes to keep the thread alive

Whoo-hoo, that's a frickin' knee-slapper, man! :lol:

Let's see, I'm gonna start a thread complaining about the mileage I am getting on my Torino. That'll be a hoot!

Greg
Then it just degraded and by the last time I visited that thread it was time to be locked?
