Solving with Excel - Locked

Wayne - I just wondered.. why did you lock this thread?

It was an interesting debate - possibly a bit too emotional at times, but worth persuing nonetheless. I believe MC is mistaken in his thinking, but MC obviously doesn't - why not let us carrry on our conversation? We were being adult and civil.

A word of advice from someone who works on a forum with over 2,000 members; never ever ever close a thread without explaining why you did it because someone will open another thread and ask why. And secondly, don't edit posts or merge threads unless it is to save space or remove profanity. Again, people go loopy (and rightly so in many circumstances). :)

I think it's perfectly OK for the moderator to lock a conversation where one person just doesn't get it, and obviously never will, despite several complete, logical, easily understood arguments.

It might have been a bit better, though, if the moderator had added one final post, before locking it, explaining why he was locking it.
