You want my opinion
You don't give a shit about off topic discussions you used it as an excuse to lock a thread because you didn't like what it was about and you have a deep hatred for the thread starter.
Now you are dressing it up to try and hide your real motivation.
When was the last time before this you locked a thread for going off topic when it was not discussing moderating decisions ???
It's not up to the op to decide how a discussion should progress.
Its the Crips and the Bloods all over again
