A thread was locked....

I'm an active model rail roader but due to medical problems my model building and layout building came to a halt for a number of years. Lately I have been fine and I returned to a model railroad forum and asked if battles were still going on between those who wanted to run their trains digitally and those who didn't.

The thread was eventually locked, not because of what was said in the long thread, but the "potential" the thread had to open battle wounds again. Model railroaders can be just a dumb as amateur photographers posting here. But my point is that nothing detrimental was said, it was just the potential for something detrimental - a silly reason to lock a thread - heavy handed moderating.

Once the heavy moderating starts there's no going back, and if they are going to use moderators here, who knows what types they will recruit on a power trip.
