That's just silly and you know it.Also considering there's only like 5 locked threads on each of those forums in the first 100 threads. "Rampant" is not what I would call that. Most of the locked threads on Towns are simply developer name-calling. Most of the Guncraft locks are the inevitable "This is minecraft" nonsesene.When pepole cannot adhere to the rules of the Discussion, such threads are locked or users are banned. That's normal forum moderation. Legitimate thoughtful criticism is fine. Screaming like a petulant child is not.

I believe that some moderators or people with moderator access may be abusing their authority, I really hope Steam does something to renew my faith in them regarding this issue.
And regarding what Satoru said on the Guncraft forums they were out right deleting many threads...people concerned about purchasing a game can't see deleted threads.
