Havn't got the official reason (as I'm not a mod) but I would assume that with all the flame wars and other things being attributed to OEM- they (the moderators) probably decided to put a stop to it all.

While I (in hindsight) agree with their decision as people were getting fed up with it all- I would like closure on the subject, whats the OFFICIAL reason for the locking the thread- but as they said... things like this are probably best kept to a simple "thing before you act" message and PM's.

Speaking of PM's- try asking Jeff Bolton, as far as moderators and OEM involvment goes.. he's the best person to ask (but he officialy removed himself from the OEM and has no further involvment- just to clear that up).

Check the 'macs final post here.

Bascially sums it up. It really dosn't matter anyways. The crusaders just ran off the ships to find that there were no Moors to fight.

I was reading Theelmac's final post of the "official OEM thread".
It was definatly about the flame wars, although it seemed more like a personal view on HIS part rather than a decision by the moderators as a collective body- but thats just my opinion.

If THIS thread continues to bitch about the moderators decision to close the thread- we could be opening another stack of beans, and I don't want another thing to explode over OEM.

But official wordage on the subject would be groovy but it seems that its just about bit****g, griping and people going over the top in the name of ethics.

no- its cool by me- I want to know too, but remember that the OEM was founded on the intention of educating people and look where that went

Yes, my final post pretty much sums up why the discussion of that nature has been closed. This is not something that was ever supported officially, and was never an official body. It was closed down by me, and if you don't like it, you can feel free to appeal the decision. You can also take it up with me. However, posting threads about it when I SPECIFICALLY SAID NOT TO is NOT a good way to find out about it.
