Honestly, I find it really annoying when a thread gets locked for absolutely no reason. I understand if it's really big arguments starting, or something get inappropriate, but I see a lot of threads get locked for no reason. It really gets under my skin. Oh, and by the way, "Because it will turn into an argument" is completely invalid, because if it hasn't already turned into an argument, there's no reason to lock it. You don't know if the kids posting on that thread are mature enough to just have a friendly debate, or if it'll turn into an argument, unless it already has.
My whole goal in life is to get AlphaT to debate Teh_Skittlez as an Atheist and for Teh_Skittlez to debate AlphaT as a Christian.
That awkward moment when you realize that you couldn't see that amazing debate because you're not old enough to see the P&R section... -.-
