    Bickering?

    You can talk, you can talk, you can bicker,
    You can talk. You can bicker, bicker, bicker, you can talk
    You can talk. You can talk, talk, talk, talk, bicker, bicker, bicker.
    You can talk all you wanna, but it's different than it was.

    I wish there was a Dislike button.

    Anyway . . . what was the topic again? Oh yes. Continuous bickering.

    Necessary? No. Except to the bickerers. Egos are at stake. It's important to "win", or at least get in the last word, and if you can't win by the validity of your argument, you have to try to outlast your counter-bickerer. Usually by saying the same thing repeatedly, until one of you gets frustrated and plays the Ad Hominem option and gets the thread lock.

    There are more creative ways to get a thread lock. Maybe we need training.

    The purpose of internet forum is to promote product(s).

    If anybody things otherwise - like spreading good will among forum participants or to disseminate useful technical information - I have a bridge to sell you.

    Of course to every rule there are random exceptions.

    I think that really nails it square-on. It's usually all about egos - "I'm right and you're wrong" and it just escalates until one of the parties starts lobbing bombs

    Why do some threads get locked, Then unlocked, Then locked, Then unlocked, Then locked, Then unlocked, Then locked, Then unlocked, Then locked, Then unlocked, Then locked, Then unlocked, Then locked ???

    Seems there would be a better way if only mods are allowed to post. A Posters Permissions setting would be better.

    When I see a locked thread, I normally ignore it.

    The lock is getting abused. A lock has feelings also.

    That takes the fun out of amateur radio, Dave. Shouldn't participation on the air AND on QRZ.com forums be pleasurable? An escape value from the normal stressors of life. At least that is my humble opinion on the matter.

    Remember that humble saying? I'm not always right... but I'm never wrong.;)
