Yes, I found it very odd, but I'm not sure what the reason was. If they had a rule saying it shouldn't be discussed, I wasn't aware of it and had no ill intention.
One St. Domenic speculated that it might be a carryover from my "previous forum" which is ridiculous since the quote came from a completely different website where the matter was being discussed. I intentionally did not use the name of the website or the poster (who I had never had a discussion with before anyway).
In any case I hope that was not the reason it was locked. I don't think it was. I think perhaps the issue has simply caused riots on the forum before that I was not aware of. We'll see what serv says.
I must say I am disappointed that I will never get my much desired input on this problem from the posters on AQ, a majority of whom I respect.
In any case, I will gladly post the thread here where I know we can discuss freely. I'll put it in the "Crisis" section.
I'd be interested to hear your input!
