    Final piece of advice, don't make this thread a "P4 630 flamefest" thread, let it be a peaceful "please Urlyin, we promise to behave ourselves" thread. Or it gets locked.

    I could not agree more. I'm sure we've all done things in the past we wish we could take back, but can't. I know I have. I'm also sure P-4 did not mean to intentionally get the thread locked, he just used poor judgment and got carried away.:slap:

    Let's move on to other topics for awhile and let this cool down. Maybe if we're good girls and boys we'll get the thread unlocked at some point.:)

    +1 on that thoughtdisorder - everyone needs to walk away, count to 10 and just forget about it for now.

    The irony, complaining that some guy posts emo pics and then crying about a thread :)

    Anyway, to sooth all your pain, posting tech related things on this tech forum is still allowed. So TPU is still TPU.

    It's dead, let's just let it die. If a mod feels generous and re-opens it, then awesome. If not, well... we still have it, so we can look back through it.

    More than half million (lot more). Those 1/2 million are 'views' meaning people who come, see, go without posting. The 'hits' include all the number of times you visited the thread to post or make changes to existing posts.

    Unfortunately 1/2 million (+) hits to a forum thread that has no ads doesn't mean anything much to TPU (sad but true).

    Now it's back to all work/no play or people starting countless GN threads for every little funny/trivial thing they come across.

    Let me put it like this guys it was P4 who finally push the apple cart over and was the final cause and my message to him was
    So as to the thread being closed is the fact that it has a history of being a pain in the ass and sometimes people just get tired of being ignored... I enjoyed the thread for the most part myself only I can't ask others to babysit when it just shouldn't have to be done in the first place...
    Mussels, Silverel, SK-1 and 4 others say thanks.
