65. Locking -
If the moderators were to remove all the attacks against the OP, this thread would be fairly empty of replies. If this thread were to remain open, we'd find ourselves back to where we are now.

This thread is being locked for the following reason:

Disruptive and likely to derail an otherwise thoughtful discussion.

It is the responsibility of every DU member to help promote thoughtful discussion by staying on-topic and exercising the appropriate level of self-control. This is especially important when interacting with other DU members who are making a good-faith effort to have a thoughtful and respectful discussion.

Thank you for your understanding.
