    So who has noticed that both the Cop Corner and the Political Thread were locked?

    I think I give this place far more than I get and maybe it is time to step away and let it die.

    While we are censoring things I guess the racist Ride for Kobe thread needs to be locked.

    What else?

    Of the girly thread.

    The funny thread.

    The funny video thread.

    I did notice that they both are now locked...no more posts in those threads. Hopefully there is a post floating around somewhere explaining why and why now.

    I have not seen one. I am guessing that somebody's little feelers got hurt and they cried. They are really going to be crying come November.

    personally, I hope you stick around - I step away from time to time (just get busy, etc.), but I've always enjoyed your input, humor, and otherwise!

    Yeah, I'm not seeing an explanation anywhere either. I think you're likely correct...someone didn't care for the content and the admins got tired of dealing with complaints. Maybe there is more to it? Unless an admin comes forward to shed some light on things we are all left to assume...

    Maybe the admins will unlock it once people cool off a bit? Hopefully you and others don't bail on TheVog now.

    I just find it funny that they lock two threads that bring this place a ton of traffic.
    It seems my humor is what got my Cop Corner locked. One little joke about a criminal being shot....for being a criminal......and lock the door and turn off the lights. We wouldn't want to insult any criminals or their sympathizers.

    Hey if the forum owner is not about having traffic and making money we should lock them all.

    No, no, no!!! We need more cops, not less! Please don’t quit, it’s only an Internet forum. It shouldn’t matter much because it’s mostly meaningless except for the ‘How Do I’ or the ‘Introduction’ type threads. Yes, ok, even the oil and oil filter threads.

    Personally I’ve lost a lot of respect for some of the members here. The ones who know Victory but otherwise spew nothing but hate on the locked threads.

    Block the intentional idiots, you’ll enjoy the forum a lot more.

    Rule number 1:
    1. You can’t help the unwilling, you’ll frustrate yourself and they wll
    resent you.

    PS - You can’t talk reason with a person who arrived at their position without any.

    I have many on ignore. It is nice having that feature.

    I don't mind helping those that pop it and have a question not to be seen until the next one but what I really enjoy is the good conversations I have been able to have here with from guys all around the world. If that is being taken from me I don't feel I have much holding me here. If I can't talk to people I like about things I like...that are not motorcycles.....I just don't really see the point.

    Yeah; I expect forum traffic to slow to 50% of what it was but I get the feeling the admins don't care.

    Someone got butthurt and complained too many times because that's what whiners do.
