Yeah, I was confusing the two threads together. Good call.
But I do think the rest of my counter-argument is still appropriate. If the thread is about "Lock is kinda the same as FT it feels like" then the subject-line should be also.
There is a bit of a conflict of interest in you changing that subject line that would be best left for other mods to decide. And I think it was just a flat-out bad choice for a new subject-line.
For example, if this topic was made in the internet forum and Mike Haven changed the subject-line exactly as you had done my reaction would be the same (except for the conflict of interest part), "Mike, you misinterpreted that thread I think. Maybe you just skimmed the first paragraph? It has nothing to do with "frequent account verify" stuff. OP put a decent effort into that discussion starter and the inaccurate subject-line does a disservice here, etc etc."
But anyway, the first post (which was left mostly/entirely untouched I believe) had to do with relating current Lock stuff with past FT stuff....including other things that were not at all even remotely related to "frequent account verification."
I mean, here are the second and third paragraphs of the very first post:
Lock has been hemorrhaging money on payment processing, marketing, acquiring a network that was universally understood to be in debt by industry insiders. They can't staff the support, development team, or even their own forum on 2p2
It's also worth noting that a major drain on FTP was the constant signing of pro's
No, the thread is NOT about "hey, why are you making everyone verify their account so many times? Are there any others out there that are being told to do this?" I thought that's what it was and I didn't care so I didn't open it.
I assumed the subject of the thread was the OP's choice and that he accurately conveyed the content in the thread.
now with this second thread about it I finally know what the first thread really was about. I had no idea before. I think it is a very interesting thread by the way.
The thread IS about speculating. So the subject-line should be also. And if you aren't going to allow even that then I think the discussion may be best held in another forum where the other mods who don't work for Lock can make their own determinations on the appropriateness of the subject-line.
