I noticed the thread started in response to the California Prop 8 litigation has been closed. It looked pretty respectful to me what grounds were there to close this discussion? It wasn't political except in the broadest sense that everything in life can be politicized if you want to do that badly enough. The lounge is "anything and everything" not car related after all. It started in the lounge, I am almost sure of it, but it is in the "snake pit" now and locked, that seems like a prejudgment to me. In fact it is insulting bordering on offensive to me. Much of the world frames this as an emerging human rights issue. It seems prejudicial to arbitrarily halt the discussion. It certainly wasn't a political discussion in any credible sense. I thought we weren't going to have any more of this ham-handed moderation?
