Just because you don't like a thread doesn't mean you get to lock it, Holby.

I am sorry to say this, but I think it is abuse of authority.

That thread is about acknowledging what has been lost. It's not about placing blame. Please unlock it.

Or another Ranger please unlock it.

Frankly, Holby, you don't have the authority to lock it. Obviously you have the ability to, but that's not the same thing.

I have the right to mourn who has been lost from B77 without your interference.

I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map, And knew that somehow I could find my way back; Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too - So I stayed in the darkness with you

I agree with Faramond.

I had stated in the thread that I was overstepping my bounds.
I totally agree with you.
I do not have the authority.
I also mourn just as you do.
And I do not think this is the time for that. We can't handle that right now. I am not going to wait around until it becomes another bloodbath.
I am erring on the side of caution.
If the board feels I am wrong I am quite willing to pay the price.

Holby, please unlock the thread

even if just for the moment.

Time enough to lock it later if it comes to that, but for now can we please give the board the opportunity to act maturely?

Think of it as a test.

If they can't pass this test, then there is no hope. And yes those of us with one foot out the door will probably pass through, if this test fails, but if the tenuousness of the current situation is not acknowledged by all by now, it never will be. Let B77 step up to the mark and act as a community.

Please.

:hug: holby

and I understand you are acting in a protective way.. I understand all to well.

Fine.
You guys do what you want.
Do not ask me to step in and clear the carnage afterwards.
I am having no part of it.

[obsolete]I'm not going to lodge a complaint against you, Holby.

I don't want to go down that road again.



I ask again that another Ranger please unlock my thread.[/obsolete]


edit: Thank you. I hope we pass the test.

Faramond,

The statistics are duly noted. There are other threads around where we can discuss the causes of that statistic and work on moving forward. Namely:

1 The overall atmosphere being almost that of a huggy romper room that meant the more literary types felt out of sorts.

2 Those who invested their time in the Charter finished and looked back on the board and, because they had not had the time to invest their own personalities on the board, did not recognize the board any more. There is certainly an overlap between this and the reason above.

3 Rangers having fuck-all muscles to nip arguments in the bud. This is necessary, absolutely necessary, when hot heads (I'm one of them at times) and immovable objects collide. Several of the posters on your list have left purely because of seeing huge arguments spill over and soil thread after thread.

No need for a new thread.

Indeed, Lidless.

I request this thread be locked ... and moved into a quieter forum like Business or Archives if that would work better. It doesn't need to be in Turf anymore.
