Threads being locked down? Seriously?

Anyone care to explain why DISCUSS: ONE SHOT TECH MILESTONE REACHED has been locked? There were some extremely valid points made, as well as questions asked that I feel deserve answers. Who's this "warlocc" by the way? I see no credentials attached to his profile. And why does this person have the power to just shut things down? It's baffling to me that we are asking questions pertaining to a particular announcement, in a "discussion of announcements" section, yet he closes shop with the excuse of:

Question. Why are complaints that go against your narrative, not "constructive"? The very nature of the "Discussion of Announcements" is to encourage feedback for these updates, is it not? So you're saying, in the future, if we have questions or complaints about a posted update, we are to post these opinions in a thread that sees as much traffic as a dirt road somewhere in the deep South?

He was a forum user for a while and is now a part of PR. Pretty sure I saw him complaining a few months ago about mods being unable to respond to discussions properly and he’s literally done exactly that.

As far as I know, to be considered constructive you have to give some feedback about possible ways to "fix" that which one is complaining about.

Also, the complaints where not really about the update itself nor its content but rather more about the "update schedule" and the types of updates that has come out lately, so not really relevant to that specific update.

There have been countless threads veer completely off topic into neutral or unrelated-but-not-negative topics and not be locked. They just don't like people pointing out the negative, though not untrue, facts.

Compulsively clicking the refresh button until the next update.

Your feedback is never constructive and is always the same complaint. How is a comment like "Yawn" constructive?

Funny how that works isn't it? You'd think something might have changed after 6 years...
