I noticed that a thread I began recently has been locked. While there is no "official" explanation, it seems somewhat obvious (at least to me) from some of the most recent posts, that things had begun to deteriorate beyond the suggesting of "etiquette approved" solutions to the issue in the OP. Though it could have been an interesting and informative discussion about how to handle something, it unfortunately touched on one of those sensitive topics of which we've all been admonished to be mindful with our postings - and was headed down hill.
Sooo...the thread got the online equivalent of the "icy stare of doom." And I will try to be more careful in the future. My apologies.
