Topic Closed

If I am not very much mistaken, then the links to the closed topics appeared to be grey earlier.

Could you please do that again?
I really enjoy reading closed threads

No. I enjoy reading the ones with controversies and fights.

Re: Topic Closed

I do too, but the fighters have left the forum. I would love to close more threads.

Besides the best fight threads have been deleted.

Re: Topic Closed

Why did you have to delete them?

That is the document I was talking about

They were particularly ugly. It is not good for the members to see squabbling. This is supposed to be a pleasant place. Also sometimes the combatants removed them.

They could occasionally see them. Besides it reveals how childish/revengeful people can be

That is true but what would anyone gain in seeing someone at their worst?

Re: Topic Closed

Yes, he has tried that at least 15 times after being barred as GiB. He spends a lot of time trying to get passed the defenses. It is time wasted.

He does lurk here so I do not wish to smarten him up on how he is being detected. Let's just say he has no chance.

His of course. He should use his time better by improving his math.

I think I would define it as he should learn some before he begins to make up his own.

That is his problem. He is a self proclaimed genius.
