2. I'm not sure how it works.

But it was definitely shut down at the time.

Another one of my threads that was shut down was my JJ Cale thread that I posted after he died. If you are really interested in this "shut down, locked out" thing you might want to put JEFF9K and JJ CALE in the search box and it will come up, as I just found out yesterday.

Is there a difference between "shut down," "hidden," and "locked?"

3. When you say shut down - I would consider that to mean that the thread was locked and no one could

participate. That is not the case with this thread or the JJ Cale thread. Neither are locked and anyone can still respond (except you in the JJ Cale thread and anyone else who had a post hidden in that thread).

If you get a post hidden in a thread then you are no longer able to post in the thread. Everyone who doesn't have a post hidden can still participate in it unless a Host or Admin locks the thread. Then no one can participate (except I think they can still recommend a locked thread).

You get a post hidden when a jury votes that your post doesn't meet community standards (rude, uncivil, bigoted etc.) Juries are a crapshoot. Some posts get hidden that shouldn't and some posts don't get hidden that should.

I already searched this thread and the other to see what you were talking about.
