I had forgotten that this thread got locked, and when I went back to find it I see:
Apples said:
Gratuitous self-bumping for the sake of bumping is not tolerated. If a topic has been been exhasted in dialog and content (for example, one that's say 5 months old... like this one) please let it go. Certain people seem to have an agenda to keep this thing on page 1 at all costs, and quite frankly it's tiring.


I think between this thread and the the "suggest a song" feature, your voice has been heard on this subject. Move on.
This is really one of the worst examples of forum moderating that I have seen. There was no “Gratuitous self-bumping for the sake of bumping” going on. This was simply one thread where everyone who wants Tool in RB could have their voice heard.

The last sentence is just insulting. Move on? WTF!

Regardless of whether or not you like Tool, there was no good reason whatsoever that this thread was closed.

If nothing else, I would like to hear Apples explanation, however, I think unlocking the thread would be the better thing to do.

See the thread for yourself and tell me if there is any justification for locking it:

    How so? It definitely wasn’t going to be unlocked without saying something.

    I will ignore the expected juvenile responses the General forum is so famous for.

    Just looking for a response from Apples.

    Try sending a PM. That usually works.
    I just always think that when threads like this pop up...other Mods are just gonna lock them up without a blink of an eye.

    One of my threads was locked (for an unknown reason), and I didn't make a thread. Anyways, I think you are confusing the general forum with the official.

    First of all, that thread is over 7 months old. Get over it.

    Secondly, I can see why he locked it...

    6th page, sorry, can't have that.

    Someone bumping a thread to page 1 just because they want the "exposure" is against the rules and continued bumping will cause a thread to be locked. It appears thats all that Tombrady member did was continue to reply messages just to keep it page 1.

    Edit: also, the thread will not be unlocked.

    If I were him I would have someone go into the thread and purposly praise or flame the band for a logical staged excuse and it would act as a bump

    One quote on page 6 of a 62 page thread huh? Well done.

    Look, there is nothing to “get over.” I see it as a complete lack of judgment by a moderator and am simply looking for a response.

    Locking a thread that is simply requesting a band in the Ultimate Setlist forum that was kept civil and on topic seem quite odd.

    WTF are you talking about? My quote was from Tombrady on page 61, he was bumping the Tool post due to the fact it was not on the first page of the setlist.

    I'm also going to lock this thread. The tool thread is over 7 months old. Join one of the million tool threads in that forum. A thread that has been locked and dead for months is not going to be unlocked, period.
