Would it be possible for dumb asses to not high jack threads and get them locked?! There sort of was a fairly decent ongoing discussion about Massive X going on and two shmo's decide to jump in out of nowhere and flame each other and get it locked.

Go get a life and go play Fortnite or something.

Just open up another one... and watch it get locked in no time as well. :ud:

Or just go to the NI forums, and discuss it there. Even though there's a fair amount of trolls there as well.

BTW, as i had my fair share in the lock as well: My apologies to you, and the people who are genuinely interested in the topic. No apologies to the people i adressed with my last post in that thread. 100% stand behind my statement there. Some things just have to be said, regardless of the outcome. It's one thing to have valid points of criticism, it's another to outright troll the same topics over and over again.

@telecode: I didn't lock it. It wasn't me who started the thread, and, i'm not a mod either. :) My "fair share" of the lock was that i've made a sarcastic comment to a guy who misses no opportunity to troll NI in those threads.

Oh no, yet another Massive X thread :x . Mods, lock it please!

Btw, is Fortnite any good? My 9 y.o. son asked me to install it for him the other day but I don't even have an idea what it actuially is.

Apart from it seeming to be the latest and biggest hype, i don't know anything about it. ;)

Well, actually looks like something worthy of my time.

I don't understand why I have to install something on a PC though, seems that I would rather have to get an onesie and a gun.

To get to the topic again: I must admit that i don't quite get the modding on this site. Seems rather counterproductive to rather lock threads, than to call out and warn people for their abusive/whatever behavior (in PM or whatever). It's as if a policeman would rather shut down a party, before telling the people who organize the party to lower the volume of the music. This way, the only thing which is obvious is that when you're getting too abusive, the thread will be locked, which spoils it for everyone. Can't be the intended and desired outcome. Not for me, at least. My guess is that KVR wants to avoid accusations of judging in favour of companies, by shutting up people who "criticize companies", which isn't happening, when it's just obvious trolling.
