But I seem to find things inconsistent. I've reported some threads that don't get locked even they are trolling which is against the rules, and i've reported threads that get locked right away. But i'm not quite sure why my topics would get reported. They aren't trolling, or deserve to be in another topic. It also seems to be the case that if I report someone, the mod locks my thread instead of doing anything to the other person.
Mods aren't going to keep bouncing in and out of a thread, warning loads of people over and over again.
If a thread gets way too messy, it gets locked, plain and simple. It's the easiest solution.
