I've had enough of this utter bullshit... The last three threads I've tried to reply to have been closed!!! ZP is becoming a bit of a joke in this respect... I don't care which admins are responsible, I'm not looking to beef or bitch about specific admins... I'm just annoyed because some good threads are getting closed because of the odd one or two objectionable posts. It's like admins/mods are becoming too lazy to remove the bad posts/flame bait/etc. and instead close good threads that people would like to maturely respond to. Could ZP add a rating system for each post so that there's a threshold (0=unmarked, 1=insightful, -1=flamebait, etc.) with the default at level zero. I admit that this pathetic crap is not enough to put me off ZP but it's sure making things intolerable for a fair few users and I'm sad to see some of the long-time members put off by all this. It's causing unnecessary offence, it's stopping us from talking about non-p2p issues that have any political clout because some mods disagree with the political sentiments of a thread or the general consensus. (despite their claims that they're just stopping flaming.. some are closing threads because of their political persuasion!!) I'm not trying to be an ass.. it just seems free-speech is getting pretty restricted because some moderators haven't got enough tolerance, are too lazy to remove the really bad posts or disagree with view asserted by members. Seph.. this is not a swipe at you.. I'm just talking about the general closing of threads when it's not really needed.. whether by you or anyone else. AND... anyone responding to this.. PLEASE don't single out any admins/mods. Try to keep make sure any response relates to the **actions** we're experiencing.. not the person(s) involved. I'm not trying to kick off another bash-someone thread, those posts make me just as sick as the over zealous thread-closing. Both sides kinda piss me off... there's gotta be a better way to handle all this. Peace!!
