Re: WTC Collapse = Controlled Demolition - Official 911 story is utter Bollocks.
It is the opinion of the moderator team that this thread has, in general, ceased to serve any useful function. It has deteriorated into repeated statements of position and pisstaking; respectful discussion is mainly conspicuous by its absence. There have already been official warnings given to some participants due to their conduct on this thread.
We realise that some element of sense is still being spouted on both sides; however to prevent things from getting out of hand the decision has been taken to lock the thread. We apologise to those forum members who are engaged in serious discussion here, but we must think of the forum as a whole above any particular thread, and we hope that you find other methods (PM, new threads) of continuing.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact a member of the moderating team; our user names are in the signature of this post.
Thanks for your understanding,

Whats the big idea?
Is this an enlightened forum, are all of us being represented by the concerns of dutiful moderators - or influenced by coward/s with egos to protect?
Should we allow those ego's to represent all members and moderators on the board on the board?
Why do I feel like I've seen this all before - and it's no surprise.
For those of you who are not afraid ( Members and Moderators Alike ) to discuss things openly, may I suggest you post your thoughts here.
Given that the moderator who has made the decision to close the thread has not left his/her name, but a list of moderator names - may I politely ask all Moderators who voted for the close of the thread to post here to register their agreement in the decision here on the board.
Alternatively, if there are moderators who disagree with the decision to close the thread - they too are equally welcome on this thread to register their feelings - so we can keep things in the open and get our much beloved thread reopened.
Personally, I rather not have to write this because I'd rather be discussing with people I've been chatting / exchanging with over the last few months on the thread - regardless of whether we agree or not.
Whether the Mod/s in question who have closed the thread will like it or not, the thread has been a tremendous success and topic of discussion for months on end. There have been multiple visitors to it, and it's reached over 7,000 views - and been the longest ( I think ) in this sections history.
It seems insufficient to close the thread on the veiled accusation of a few members behaviour that has been on the thread. There's been derision, idiocy, and alot of debate - but I dont think anyone has felt victimised to the point of necessitating the thread being closed. Certainly there are many threads with similar behaviour on the psy forum which would constitute being closed if this were the case.
On the WTC thread - we've all had a crack at each other, and at times even found moments to pause for moments of good will in the frey, but I think we are all mature and enlightened enough to walk away from the computer screen if the topics ever got too much - perhaps for the Moderator whos made this decision this is a sad reflection of their own lack of self control.
Unless there can be some justifiable reason to close the thread on the basis of those involved then the decision to close the thread is NOT made in the interests of the participants - but by those who are not participants.
It seems a shame that on a thread where many people here have defended the rights of freedom, tolerance, enlightenment, truth, and peace, that there has been no substantial excuse to take the action.
I propose that this thread has not been closed as a result of a unanimous decision from all moderators - but on the decision of a select few or less. For those moderators who have NOT made the decision to close the thread, I am not here to tar you with the same brush.
I have faith
Respectfully, I request that we immediately reopen the thread in the interests of freedom of thought, debate, and speech unless those of us who have not been party to this decision are able to at least have a list of those moderators who stand behind the closure.
I understand why there are moderators, but like a government they are there to serve us as opposed to serving themselves, ironically reflected in the themes of the thread currently closed.
So please, those who made the decision to close the thread , please step forwards and prove to everyone you stand honestly behind your decision, rather than speaking for everyone of the 7000 views who has read, participated and enjoyed the thread. Personally I think you say more of yourself by not showing your true identity in doing so , - speaking from behind the curtain.
If the Moderator declines this opportunity, may I suggest those who have participated consider what that demonstrates about the interests in the freedoms and interests of all here. How Ironic it is that this should occur within the "Environment and Politics" Section - what does this say about our policy towards both?
SO MOD - IS YOUR DECISION TO CLOSE THE THREAD TRULY AN ENIGHTENED ONE?
....or more reflective of the kind of mentality that leads to this:
On YOUR conscience be it.
for the moderators who are not represented by this - please, demonstrate what a moderator is all about - I respectfully request that you reopen the thread, or step forwards to express your opinion.
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
If we do not believe in freedom of speech for those we despise we do not believe in it at all.
DID THE MODERATOR WHO DID THIS SPEAK FOR YOU?
