What's up with all the thread locking?? If something is even slightly political nature is mentioned, the thread is almost immediately locked down. I've been reading these forums for about 12 years and a member for going on 10 years. In my time participating on BITOG, 98% of the time everyone gets along and most all of the posting is in good taste. Just today a thread about a CA emissions lab was closed down, yet there was no bickering or put downs going on. Everyone who posted was civilized and in agreement with each other. Why are we not allowed to discuss what the admins deem political in nature? Are we really not allowed to speak our minds? Even if everyone is civil or in agreement?? I'm sure I'll be reprimanded for posting this. Whatever, I don't have anything to lose. People disagree about motor oil, oil change intervals, other automotive products and practices, but politics are strictly forbidden for some reason, even though some "political" topics are directly related to the primary subject matter discussed on these boards.

I never understood it either. But thats how the owners wanted it. Funny how anything political gets blocked but a thread about illegal emission control mods is allowed to stay

Think its a bit worse than that. A total blanket ban on politics, though a bit inhibiting, is at least simple and even handed, but sometimes I get the impression that a bit of the right kind of politics is OK, but not the other kind.

I come here for oil stuffs not politics. If it's related in the industry I'm perfectly fine with it.

It's until about the 4th comment down where some vague attack about some political idea/group/individual gets the ball rolling from there. I find that post has pretty much always existed on a topic that happens to have politics in it, which just makes it insufferable for the rest of the adults.

Sometimes a thread gets locked and the offending posts are deleted, so it will occasionally seem like a fairly innocuous thread got locked, when that's obviously not the case.

For non-heat bearing situations, I like carpenters glue as thread locker. It'll give under force, but will keep most nuts in place well. Also like 3M 5200 in wet environments.

As far a the other kind of thread locking, it is what it is ...
