    Hey Manisha it is not on you.
    My concern is with forum rules. As the freedom of expression is snatched by closing such threads .

    Haven't we cleverly identified the trolls and got such threads closed?!?

    A thread which kept going with great momentum is closed abruptly because of tone of discussion. Maybe some discussions require that tone ?

    A request to the members would help maybe instead of closing it altogether.

    Viswa Sir,
    I feel OP also ready to accept criticism when opening any thread on sensitive/emotional topics and sometimes need to rethink about her/his opinions on somethings.

    @Mistt

    I was not referring to specific thread. I agree with you, if I start a controversial thread, I should be ready to accept other view points gracefully. I was talking about general discussion thread that involves all kinds of discussions.

    I agree with you on giving warning to members and should take locking thread as last option.

    There have been many threads which were closed... they are all as dead as a dodo.

    No risk within 1000 mile rule. Usually the threads get closed when they start to attract the 'actual' conversations. Everything is fine until its a random chat / gossip.

    I almost got my popcorn ready for the actual show you know.:rolleyes:. Wouldn't it be nice to get out of diplomacy now and then.

    From a very high, really high, higher than you can imagine, moral position, closing of that particular thread can be justified. But, if you talk about business, how good is the decision? More the heated exchanges more the traffic! That means more advertisements and more revenues. I know many publications themselves create controversy to propell the sale of their magazine.

    This has been the thumb rule for the media companies to flourish!
    Like a million of them.

    Also why Kangana Ranaut stirs up some controvery just before the release of her movies. Otherwise she's sober and inside the closet. Come movie release she will start attacking Hrithik Roshan.

    Ha ha Anusha I came back after a day to find out not 1 but two threads closed with a chance for 3rd one too. Now I can understand op wanted to close their original thread it’s upto them. But if OP goes on stressing the same thing in multiple threads should all of them be closed !
