As far as I'm aware, you aren't a moderator, so you can't really "rule" on anything but thank you for your opinion.
Why not just NOT participate in a thread that you BELIEVE may be shut down? As an adult it is your choice to avoid activity that may cause you to earn a warning point. Instead it seems you are making one heck of loud argument that you want all these topics stopped. You say you want clarification, but that is just an indirect route to saying "hey, this isn't fair!" THAT is what I think is "crying". You've read the rules. You know the reality of the "bending" and the judgment calls the mods make. You say "no disrespect to the mods", but in reality you are questioning their past performance since they have closed some threads and NOT others. I am suggesting you leave it at is, suck it up, and not participate if you don't feel like it. PLEASE drop the "clarification" rouse.
