I haven't read this entire thread, because I noticed that it was started in 2009, many years old.
I would like to request that when a thread gets locked the offending person is allowed one post in order to apologize or gently explain the reason for the offending post.
I recently had a thread locked where it was explained "OP was looking for offense when none was intended"
Looking back, yes, I was pretty harsh with my post.
I would like to have the opportunity to apologize for my offending post.
Any chance of this happening?
