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:

"So to get this thread back on track: If anyone has actual constructive complaints or feedback for updates, the appropriate place is the Feedback thread. Continuing it here is going to get this thread locked.

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.

Oooo, heavy

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

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

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...

Your statement about no

Your statement about no progress in 6 years is simply not accurate - we've shown a lot of progress in the last two years since I started work on the character builder with Charles and we're at the point where we have quite a bit done for that and we didn't have that 6 years ago, hell even 2 years ago...

I realize that your frustrated that it's taking so long, I ask that you realize that most of the people on the team are volunteers, and we joined the team well after the kickstarter was completed - well after.... We are working for free because we love the idea and want to see it completed, and be a part of something hopefully great... Our rewards at this point ARE the feedback we get from the community, none of us are getting paid to do this - so negative comments like yours (and ones that are simply NOT true) really take the wind out of our sails... I'm not asking you to always stroke our egos, not at all, I personally like to get feedback that's not always 1000% positive - it's how I grow and learn as a developer.. but being negative, just to be negative, or stating things that are simply not true, or restating things over and over that *may* be true but are unable to be changed or fixed (what do they call that "beating a dead horse"?) they don't help, and only hurt... they hurt our motivation to work... I'm sorry the people before me didn't bust their ass... I'm sorry there were people before me that stifled the project, and then left... I'm sorry we've had set backs and had real life get in the way... I'm sorry we've had people join the team, and then leave... none of these things I can do anything about...

all I can do is bust my ass and move forward and try to make progress - and I am... and if I am then we are... and I'm not going to sit here and let you take that away from me... Are we a "late bloomer"? sure... I can give you that - do you have to brow beat us over that forever?

Finally... My promise to all of you is that I'm never going to stop, until we are all playing in this game - despite any negativity - I won't quit...

Statement like this, and Warcabbit's classic "Listen, and understand. City of Titans is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until we are live." are why I still have confidence that I will play this game.
