    Preventing Deleted Threads

    This is correct. Very rarely have I ever deleted or locked a thread simply because it went off topic. If a thread on prophecy turned into a thread on fishing, we may act on that. At times we will leave a reminder to stay on topic if it gets ridiculous. But for the very most part most threads stay fairly well near the topic. The problem with "off topic" threads usually comes because a fairly benign topic, sometimes even just a question someone asks, goes in a direction towards a more controversial topic and then everybody starts arguing. Then what happens is we end up with 2 or 3 or more pages of insults on something only near the original topic and eventually you can't identify what the original topic was at all. An example of this would be theological threads that turn towards eschatology even if the original question wasn't about eschatology. At times you will also see threads on non-political topics in non-political forums turn political. People get heated on these issues quite regularly, particularly political topics. Often times what takes these threads in that direction are actual legitimate correlations and those directions are worthy of being explored, but people get so angry with each other in the discussion that the original topic is unidentifiable due to the insults flying back and forth over the peripheral discussion. This gets threads closed frequently.

    The clear solution to this is more people reporting posts. Only a fraction of people report posts. If a thread gets to 15 or 20 pages over the course of a couple of days but the first report doesn't happen until then, and we look and the thread and the first actual attack is 5 or 10 pages earlier, now you have a ton of time required to clean the thread up, time we don't have. If we could clean every thread we would, but my suggestion to you is if you are in a thread and are spending a lot of time on posts and you see folks attacking each other, report them, all of them.

    Joh 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. (35) By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." People contemplating those two verses every single time they are about to click the "submit" button on a post would probably eliminate 70 or 80 percent of deleted threads.
