Why not add a "Glass House" forum?
Merely a depository for our locked threads. Readable by members only.

Tends to make folks less paranoid and adds education for the appropriate use of our unique venue.

Most locked threads wither away with time. Some tend to thrive. Like bacteria.

Having a locked forum for the sole purpose of dumping locked threads (and edited for vulgar content - even if the whole message is !@$#&^* etc..) has been proven effective in mod/member relations.

That said, This site is a daily cruise for me and a few members of my family. The founder and new owner of AOD are highly respected for their moderation and I am proud to send my children links to this site.
