39. I think there will be a difference between individual forums on DU3 in what is appropriate to lock

for not matching the forum's description. For example, Latest Breaking News might lock many threads that don't fit the description of that forum. In other forums, like Soapbox, perhaps more leeway would make sense.

I know it's tempting to use the Host's authority to keep a tight rein on suitability of posts, but that may be a mistake. The Soapbox forum appears to be the place for DUers to post their opinions and thoughts about topics. That should probably get a lot more leeway than a more specific forum does.

It is for that reason that I won't be requesting Host status for some time, if ever. I hope that Hosts will maintain a light touch with their job, on all DU forums, and let the Jury system deal with inappropriate material more often than locking by Hosts.

This is my opinion, and it doesn't just apply to this forum.
