I've looked at all of the reports from Xmara onwards, though only took direct action with the last two reports. I decided to let the thread reported by Xmara continue because despite the not particularly good OP, seven pages of relevant discussion resulted; so the thread was succeeding despite itself. A made a comment along those lines in the thread for clarity.

If I may ask, why is that thread now locked and the OP vanished from the site? If that can be discussed.

Apologies for any spamming of moderation.

That's been true for at least the last 50 years. Abortion is not a situation where you can change someone's mind via rational argument. The two sides will never, never agree. Doesn't mean we need to lock the thread.

... Okay, I'm clearly missing something here, because it's a thread that nobody touched for two days shy of a month that people started posting in without adding anything of significance to (in fact, pretty much everyone but one or two people were pretty much repeating themselves from earlier pages.). How does this not constitute gravedigging...?

The poster is new, but obviously this doesn't belong in the IC thread of all places. To clarify I don't think the person is a troll, but rather can the post simply be moved onto my OOC?

The simple answer is "who cares?" Gravedigging is not a major offense - it's just a way to shut down threads that have served their purpose when someone pointlessly resurrects it. There's always been a thread on abortion, and there's always going to be one. Why not this one?

Okay. I understand now. Thanks for the explanation.

Seems to duplicate the purpose of the abortion thread, and explicitly states that it's "not a discussion thread" in NSG

Folks, please take a moment to see if the thread you're reporting has already been reported. If it has, don't bother to duplicate that report by reporting it again. All that does is burn-up more of our time that we could be spending handling other reports, resolving GHRs, etc. Thanks.

We appear to be caught up.

I'd say both of those are best suited for F7, actually. Which is where I have moved them to.
