How come WA spotted threads are locked?

But cali ones aren't?

the "Spotted Black Is in Bellvue..." (http://www.is300.net/modules.php?nam...pic&t=13368726) one was locked after the second post, but none of the other ones are/were? I admit, its a pretty stupid thread, but hey, i woulda posted as it was hella funny. I mean who swaps body kits to one where you don't even have yella fogs!? I mean, come ooooooooooon!

But, it would be nice if the mods or whoever would post a reason why they lock a thread... had to get in a little mod abuse, we haven't done that for a while here...

Listing mods is over-rated. And so are some of the mods! - After 5 years and 467 posts, a mod tells me:

I think I looked at that "black IS in Bellvue" post...I don't think it was referring to Washington.

wasn't the "bellvue" thread started by our "jersy boy"

i'm pretty sure it was a WA thread...

but thanksgiving wasn't too bad, went back to wisconsin. seeing the packers whooped up on by the stupid lions was pretty pathetic though. ate waaaaaay too much food, thats for sure.

WTF does that mean? the WA spotted threads aren't any more idiodic than the cali ones are, but now even more are locked and deleted?

you could at least have the decency to post explicitly WHY you are locking a thread instead of mocking people. thats pretty lame for a mod. I'd respect something like: "I'm locking this because its gone stupidly off-topic." or "This post has degenerated to name calling, i'm locking it" but "and you wonder why your threads get locked" ? :roll:

ok, lets see, some guy spots a stock IS, others claim it was them but it wasn't, then there's talk about asians and crap...and it's not just WA that gets locked...the other one about bellevue was locked cuz it was a post about a car with fogs or something...not really descriptive

Is it a coincedence that the ONLY locked threads on page 1 are the 3 started by people from Washington? Not to mention 1 that was deleted too :roll: I agree that some of these spotted stock IS threads are ghey but at least be consistent with the moderating. This double standard for what gets locked and which stays unlocked is BS

How about this thread in which you replied to also and no description of the IS not to mention off-topic to boot. http://www.is300.net/modules.php?nam...pic&t=13369337 Looks the same as the Bellevue thread

i just don't understand why the moderators are making a big deal out of this... talk about power trip. i'm guessing this is going to be locked too..

just kick back... i thought this was suppose to be about City BS..?? big deal that i saw another IS on the road?? what if i just wanted to say "hi... i saw you... just wanted to know who you are?"

cool to know another one on the board.. and just have some BS talk?? i don't understand.

let's say the topic goes off hand? OH NO! come on... it'll die down with a couple hours... and usually it's some idiot that's BSing and being stupid..

geez..

Not whining at all...just stating some facts to the mods. A comment like "and you wonder why your threads get locked" seems like a potshot at WA threads.

Ltuned - I don't really see a difference how a thread titled "IS's seen in Malibu" with the first post stating "anyone here?" and "IS's spotted in Bellevue". "hey I saw some IS's in Bellevue" You claim it's a thread about finding people in Malibu yet lock the Bellevue thread after 2 posts. How do you know it wasn't a thread looking for Bellevue people? Double standard?
