I think it would be a lot easier to leave them open and let them play out. Yes, if they get to be inappropriate then by all means do what you have to do. But just b/c someone disagrees or says the truth about someone or their character or business practices...etc., doesnt mean it should be locked.
i agree, if someone is being tottaly out of line, remove that particular post, give them and infraction, but let the discussion carry on.

Just trying to comment in general. There are hundreds of boards out there....or make your own! I may be new here, but I've just been on enough boards over the years of diapering...been a diaper WAHM since 2000....that I realize it all runs in cycles and you shouldn't ever just have to sit and swelter in unhappiness on a board that you don't feel 100% in love with. Move on and find one you do. There is one out there.
I can't say that I totally agree, it seems to me that there are maybe 10 main CD boards on the net that most of the same mamas visit. I don't think that I could find a board that is just like diaperswappers with all the same rules except they don't lock threads... unless I wanted to go create my own board by copying the format of this one exactly and changing a few things, but that would just be a super lame thing to do

Why lame? That is how a lot of the boards have been created....someone thinks they can do it better or differently....so they do! Actually, I'd wager that is how most of the diaper boards, heck most boards around started out "Back in the day" there were very places to talk dipes..mostly yahoogroups actually....and then someone thought....I like x, but I don't like x, so I'm going to do my own thing. In fact....I'd guess though I have no idea, that is probably how even Diaper Swappers started. There is very little 'original' out there on the net!

Yup... if there had not been Diaper Pin, then Jodi and Rhiana wouldn't have felt the urge to leave DP and start DS. I remember being a newbie in Fall 2005 when there were WAY fewer members.
