The Extermination Agenda: Lawyers or stupid people? thread was closed, because apparently mods got complaints from a couple of lawyers about … well, lawyer bashing.
Does that mean that Best Buy bashing threads in the Pit can be closed if a SDMBer who is a Best Buy employee complains? Can threads about “damn lib’ruls” be closed if enough Democrats complain? Can a thread bashing another Doper be closed if the subject of the thread complains? Will any thread that any of the offenderati find troublesome be closed upon the reciept of a complaint?
Seriously … I’m wondering about the implications of closing an anti-lawyer thread. I can understand if the thread could have been interpreted as a joke, or that it should have been posted in another forum. There must be a good reason why this one was closed, and others subject to complaint not, right?
