If you have something you wish to discuss, fine. But this is not a topic for discussion. This is a method for you to start trouble. I am locking it, and requesting that Mr. Simkin delete it. Kathy Beckett" I request, (and don't expect to have such request taken seriously), that topics may very well be locked, but only after consultation amongst moderators, (at least three), but not deleted. The topics of whatever nature form part of history. History, in the future, is also a history of disruption and misinformation. Deletion distorts history, which one would have thought is one thing this Forum stands almost alone as a bulwark against. Recently, a thread, that amongst a huge amount on nonsense, contained numerous positive postings that were educational.The wholesale deletion denies acces to such. Blanket topic deletion if it becomes a norm, that lone moderators consider something wthin their 'job desription', will lead to a diminuition of the Forums credibility. The joke topic on Egypt is such an obvious joke topic light hearted and also a repository of argument formation that in reading can have educational influence. 'Flooding' with numerous topics all on the same subject is a far more serious issue IMO. It's a tactic seemingly used with panache by people and does nothig to broaden appeal.
