As with my most recent thread, it does seem that any attempt to steer an argument or develop a discourse in a direction that perhaps is not stated in the original narrative and statement is almost impossible as threads are closed down. Further to this, as I experimented with in my aforementioned thread (perhaps unfairly as Jan's first language I assume is in fact not english) when one makes a comment against, or pokes fun at the spelling or linguistic skill of a moderator the end result tends to be the closing of the thread. I raise this as the feeling of "its my ball" about the moderators attitude is prevalent and even vociferous in their closing of threads they don't like or they think are no longer relevant. If this is the policy, surely it needs to be permitted to edit and adapt an original post. Discussion develops and it seems the original post and development away from it is often used (as today) as an excuse to close them. Sorry to use such a sesquipedalian style.
