That one kinda irks me. Deleting it from existence seems a little bit China-ish. The title was "Talk about anything", it was posted in the Talk subsection, and we were talking. Was even one of the more civil threads around here, for all the ********* that was going on in there was really no flaming to speak of. I fail to see the problem.
I don't take issue with the forum mods performing their appointed duty, which is to moderate, but I do sometimes question the methods and intentions involved. And as others have alluded to, politics seems to have come into play on this one. Clean-up/delete this thread over here, while seemingly ignoring that thread over there.
Deleting threads from existence btw, is rarely actually necessary and is otherwise lame imo. If as a moderator, one sees a particular thread as unproductive or useless, just lock it.
My only question about all this newfound moderation the 4.6 section is on the receiving end of is, why now? I've been a member here for a year and a half, and in that time I have seen more mod activity in the last two weeks than the rest of that time combined. IMO, aside from a few butthurt's that couldn't hang, I'd say we've been doing just fine without any lawful presence. Actually, the whole "AFM 4.6 Section: Where the Weak Are Killed and Eaten" has been one of the more redeeming factors of this place.
That's my two cents.
