Temporary Lock function

Suggestion for of late the rumour section has been on an alltime high and with it so has the level of personal insults and demeaning statements towards forum members. Perhaps its time to employ some form of temporary lock on accounts so as to aid in the cooling off process. I think a good weeks worth of "Muteage" will go a long way towards restoring some decency towards other members opinions in our posts here at Pentax Forums.

Hi Kaimarx,

Although I have myself noticed an unusual level of seemingly pointless threads in the rumors forum, I will not be closing the entire section down, nor will I be locking user accounts. What I can do, however, is ban individual users that go overboard and lock individual threads- please use the reporting system to notify the moderators and myself of any broken rules. Thanks!

Yep sounds good Mo, i didnt mean to lock the usual its a case of one rotten egg escalating into a whole tray of rotten eggs. A individual ban or temporary ban sounds about right.
