Neither. I'm merely pointing out your hypocrisy.

I'm bumping those threads whenever I come across information that has enough bearing on matters that have been discussed in those threads. That's what I think is legitimate usage of the message board thread concept. Would you prefer me starting a new thread for every posting instead?
Btw, I'm looking forward to you starting a thread about my top ten fetishes, including a poll ;-)
> I can't be the only one thinking so.
I'm confident this is true. You should start a poll to be sure.
> I don't think anyone minds some off-topic discussions once in a while
How can off-topic discussion be off-topic to the subforum explicitly dedicated to off-topic discussions? From the "General Forum" description:
"This forum is for off-topic discussions. Bear in mind that standard rules apply: no flaming, baiting, or other forms of offensive posts.
> this has been going on for *two years* for christ sake!
You mean there is a limit on how long a thread is allowed to run?
> Every time I come to MorphZone I see either the Sam 460 thread, the X1000 thread, or both
Why don't you start a thread in the "Website" subforum
of MorphZone and suggest there to the administration to move the "General Forum" threads off the front page?
> that's something you don't even see on AW.net!
They have their "Free for All" threads moved off the front page. You are free to suggest that to the MorphZone administration.
> IMHO this wouldn't be "unnecessary moderation" at all
In my opinion, locking a thread that runs within the correct subforum and completely complies with all self-imposed rules and regulations of MorphZone.org is very unnecessary.
> it would merely be an overdue cleanup!
No, that would require deleting the threads, not just locking them.
> Very little of relevance to MorphOS, if indeed anything at all
That's why it's in the "General Forum" category.

Why don't you lead the way and delete all the postings you have made to those two threads you want to see locked? That would be consistent for a start, and it's true that this way nothing of relevance would get lost.

So you admit having kept this thread running, yet you want to see it locked? Hypocrisy.

> nor the Sam460, nor OS4, will ever be of *any* relevance for MorphOS
That's exactly why those threads are living in this very forum category, see? And btw, it's obvious that whenever discussion was about the X1000 hardware (mainly Nemo board) you tried hard to change the discussion to OS4, rendering your claim that you don't want OS4 to be discussed here on MorphZone hypocrisy at its best.
> If you tried to imply that what I said was about *censorship* [...] then you're just too funny...
Having threads locked that run within the correct subforum and completely comply with all self-imposed rules and regulations of the site would be a prime example for censorship. But then, we already know that you have your very own definitions of terms.
