I'm fairly new to the forum although I opened my original YT channel in 2006. I have had threads locked and I actually felt bullied and afraid to say things because I don't want to be blocked from this forum. I think this forum is very important for all of us. I don't understand why people are blocked from it unless they threaten others. I do understand locking threads that are duplicates if they are duplicate to a thread that is current. Otherwise, the people who have the power to lock threads need to keep in mind that there are new people coming here all the time who never saw the old threads. I don't think we should have to be afraid to post on an old thread or open a new one for fear of retribution from a TC who doesn't like us for whatever reason. I think if the person who locks a thread or bans a person from the forum had to put their name on that decision it would help curb the power plays of the abusive TCs. Also, none of the people who have the power to block or ban should be allowed to have more than one username on here. It's becoming an abuse of power.
