    Why is it that certain threads get locked? You know, that little lock icon over the evelop thing. I was interested in one thread in particular (subject: Apple Store Updating), but it was closed. It's a new thread posted today (18th) and it only has three replies on it. I know the moderators have something to do with it, but what causes (in terms of subject matter or whatever) a thread to get locked?

    One of the mods does it. And in this case it was me because there already was a thread on the subject. It happens from time to time, since there really is no need to have multiple threads.....

    that has got to be one of the best, not because of the PSing but just because of the relavance to the thread and the great body

    I don't recommend shaving as a weight loss plan. It'll just grow back. ;)

    jello pointed me to the Hollywood Diet, and that, plus a healthy regimen of crack has really helped me get into shape. :)
