are locked threads more interesting?

you know.. there are alot of threads that I just skip right over, because they dont catch my interest

but then days later when for whatever reason, they get locked.. It really sparks my curiousity

maybe there is something tabboo about them

what about you, do you find yourself drawn to reading locked threads whether the subject is interesting or not?

It's fun to read locked threads, especially when it's not immediately apparent what caused the lock.

Probably the best one of recent memory was a discussion on Mexican food that ended up with a member getting [BANNED]. How do these things happen?

Oh, I definately check them right away. Unless it's an obvious double-posted news story or something. Then I call Geoff and wake him up.

I have some theories on that. Let me expound on them so that this thread will become locked and thus more interesting.

What kills me though is I almost always have something I want to add to a locked thread, but I can't! And obviously it would be a bad idea to start a new thread just to respond to a locked one. We should really be able to respond to locked threads, but only one time. Make it a "last call" instead of "locked." So many great comebacks and snotty remarks get wasted.

Well, you know... There are no good small family-owned Mexican restaurants anymore...


But seriously, yep, that was one heck of a thread. Started with a customer service complaint about wanting "more nacho".

Im going to use this thread to post all the responses that I was going to post in threads that were locked before I got in

'Yeah, your mother too!'

That was NEVER the intent when he loaded the shotgun!

I prefer the ass spread wide

Yeah, the Dutch are like that

I'm pretty sure Bush was born in the NE, not the 4th circle

Your posts sound alot like Lateralus42!

and finally...

pee in her butt

I laugh and yet I completely agree with everything that you've posted in this thread so far.

I'd like to see a software "enhancement" so that when a thread gets locked all the previously deleted posts become undeleted

I think the locked threads should just be deleted if the mods don't want things to re-hatch.

I told them that once and was told the reason why they don't is because they want people to learn what NOT to post here. They're funny because they think we can learn from our mistakes...

The search tool got locked for me once. But it unlocked itself automatically after a few mins. Automatically shuts itself off if the load is too high. Amazing.
