    OK, LWM, I'll bite ... what's it for? I saw your (locked) post there, and as a relative new grandpa I understand the wording all too well (about every three minutes here, with our just-past-2 grandson ;) ), but that doesn't really explain what, in the context of Wilders, the forum's for. Especially considering the other, fairly massive, topic there.

    If i may comment, i interpret it as a place for all to see how not to conduct one's self here at Wilders(check thread). Kind of a deterent(hopefully) to bad behaviour imo.

    That's was basically the idea (i.e. a thread being "given a time-out").

    I had thought to make it a temporary cooling-off tank, but, the thread would have been too difficult to clean, and perhaps some interesting comments and insights would have been lost. So, I left it as it was, all intact, and will leave it a pointer to it in that forum section since there is another replacement thread on the same topic in the other anti-virus section.

    Edit: Threads that have been given a time-out will show as links in that section.
