Come on, a page or two of off-topic posts every couple of pages of the thread isn't the end of the world. It's a good thread to watch the changing public sentiment on this issue in the states. There's new numbers out too.

Well, if it's not unlocked I'll create a new one, and if it's locked again a new one and so on.

And if they are all locked, I'll outsource it to MY board (because it's a 2012 issue).

You yourself said a page or two every couple of pages; or, 2 pages every 2 pages, or 50% of the entire thread. I think that's your answer.

It's a 4-month old thread about polls on an issue and the off-topic posts are usually about the issue itself rather than the polling.

It's not like people were talking about their favorite food or anything.

I have to agree with the OP here. It was a few posters who went off topic, and even then the comedy was precious. Wormy sunned it up there with his best post ever. Cheesy.

This deserves unlocked.

Wait a minute. Who locked it? It wasn't me. Mr. Moderate pm'd that it wasn't him and suggested it might've been whoever the OP was, but I think this post shows it was't TB.

Did another mod lock a thread on our page? For now, this thread is getting unlocked forthwith.

There are only four people who could lock that thread:  its creator (who said it wasn't him), the two moderators for that board (who said it wasn't them), and Dave.

Edit:  I forgot Nym too, but he usually lets us know when he gets involved in things like this.

Real Americans (and Big Sky Bob) demand to know.


I just slept for 11 hours, so I should need a nap today, but we'll see.

You know, I just remembered accidentally and momentarily locking another thread the other day fumbling with the touchscreen on my new phone, so possibly.... Embarrassed

And let's be honest, Obama could take a selfie of his junk in the bathroom mirror with his BlackBerry, have it transferred to canvas and you'd have people saying it ought to be hung in the National Gallery.
